Alessandro Marcucci

Mr. Alessandro Marcucci was one of 37 coaches sanctioned by ESIC in relation to the exploitation of the Spectator Bug on 28 September 2020.

On 11 February 2021, the Appeals Hearing took place in the presence of an Independent Appeals Panel. In light of the fact that the Appellant was given the maximum concession possible under the Matrix by ESIC for his confession and assistance prior to the Statement on 28 September 2020 (85% reduction on a 36-month sanction), the Appeal Panel acknowledged the transparency and openness of the Appellant both in the lead-up to and at the hearing, thereby reducing the period of his ban by a further 5%.

Therefore, with the total reduction now standing at 90%, the length of his ban is revised down to 3.6 months, and would have ended on 15 January 2021.
