Disciplinary Charges

They illegally brought in 13 players from Nigeria between 2013-17, including former Rangers loanee Umar Sadiq. All of the players were under the age of 18, a direct contravention of FIFA regulations. A FIFA statement explained the Spezia breached "Fifa Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players (RSTP) by bringing several Nigerian minors into Italy using a scheme aimed at circumventing the aforesaid RSTP article as well as national immigration law. The Fifa Disciplinary Committee took into account that Spezia Calcio accepted responsibility for its serious regulatory violations, and imposed a registration ban ... for four registration periods and a fine of 500,000 Swiss (US$544,000)." Spezia have already stated their intention to appeal against the punishment. Two amateur clubs in Italy, USD Lavagnese and Valdivara 5, were also given 2-year transfer bans and a fine of $4,300. Italian police are now investigating as national immigration rules were also broken.

After defender Jordan Torunarigha was allegedly racially abused, Germany's Olympic football team walked off the field and refused to complete the final 5 minutes of their friendly against Honduras. A tweet from the official Germany national team in English account said: "The game has ended 5 minutes early with the score at 1-1. The Germany players left the pitch after Jordan Torunarigha was racially abused." Honduras's official account called the incident "a misunderstanding".
