According to Deadspin, Palermo’s soccer team has been relegated from the Italian second division due to Corruption and fraud.

Just days before Palermo were set to play in the Italian second division promotion playoffs with a spot in Serie A hanging in the balance, the Italian soccer authorities hit the Sicilian club with a relegation penalty that will send them into the third division next season.

The authorities handed down this automatic relegation on Monday after discovering the club’s involvement in a money laundering scheme spearheaded by its former owner.
