Italian club Reggina will start next season with a 15-point deduction in Serie A for their role in the match-fixing scandal.

Club president Pasquale "Lillo" Foti has also been banned for two-and-a-half years and fined 20,000, while the club must also pay a 68,000 fine.

Prosecutors had requested Reggina be demoted to Serie B.

Reggina usually struggle against relegation and the deduction penalty leaves them a tough task next season.

Serie B club Arezzo avoided relegation to Serie C1 but will start next season with a nine-point deduction.

Four other clubs have been punished in the scandal.

Juventus were relegated to Serie B and docked 17 points at the start of the season for seeking an unfair advantage in the appointment of referees.

They were also stripped of the Serie A titles they won in the last two seasons.

AC Milan, Lazio and Fiorentina were all allowed to remain in Serie A but with points penalties.

The clubs have lodged a second round of appeals against their sentences, which were reduced in a first appeal.

The Italian Olympic Committee's conciliation court will meet on Friday to rule on Juve's second appeal.
