Friday 18 to Tuesday 29 August 2006
Juventus, Fiorentina, Lazio, Milan and their officials lodged appeals to the CONI Court of Conciliation and Arbitration to have their punishments reduced. If the clubs and officials were not satisfied with CONI, the highest degree in sporting justice, they could have decided to appeal to the civil courts, namely the Lazio TAR Tribunal. These were the outcome of the Conciliation meeting with the Italian Football Federation (FIGC):

Clubs
All four clubs failed in their attempt to overturn their punishments in the Calciopoli scandal. The appeals were held at the Italian Olympic Committee's arbitration court at the Stadio Olympic in Rome, but the FIGC refused to back down. CONI brought together the clubs' directors and the FIGC to seek an agreement regarding the appeal, but all four meetings finished with negative outcomes. The quartet of clubs will now take the appeals process to the CONI arbitration.
