An Italian court has ordered the referees involved in the 2006 match-fixing scandal to pay $5.25 million US in damages to the Italian Football Federation.

Referee selector Paolo Bergamo received the heaviest fine of $1.31 million US on Wednesday, while colleague Pierluigi Pairetto has to pay $1.05 million.

Former Italian soccer federation vice president Innocenzo Mazzini was fined $918,000 US, and former referees Massimo De Santis and Tullio Lanese were each fined $656,000 US.

Nine others were fined smaller amounts. All can appeal. The scandal — known as Calciopoli — left Juventus stripped of the 2005 and 2006 Serie A titles and relegated to Serie B by a sports court. There were point penalties for several other Serie A teams and long bans for club and referee officials.
