UEFA opens an investigation into Juventus

The First Chamber of the UEFA Club Financial Control Committee has today opened a formal investigation into Juventus FC for possible infringements of the regulations on Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play.

The investigation will focus on alleged financial violations that have recently become public as a result of proceedings carried out by the Italian National Commission for Companies and Stock Exchange (CONSOB) and the Turin public prosecutor’s office.

On August 23, 2022, the First Chamber of the CFCB concluded a liquidation agreement with Juventus FC. This settlement agreement was concluded on the basis of the financial information previously submitted by the club corresponding to the financial years ending in 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.

In the event that, after the conclusion of this investigation, the financial situation of the club is significantly different from that assessed by the first financial control body at the time of the conclusion of the resolution agreement, or if new facts arise or become known and substantial, the First Chamber reserves the right to terminate the settlement agreement, to take any legal action it deems appropriate and to impose disciplinary measures in accordance with the applicable UEFA Financial Committee Procedural Rules.

The First Chamber will cooperate with the national authorities and will not comment further on the matter while the investigation is ongoing.
