ROME, June 22 (Reuters) - Italy's football prosecutor on Thursday ordered Serie A clubs Juventus, AC Milan, Lazio and Fiorentina to stand trial in the nation's biggest sports scandal in a quarter of a century.

In a brief statement, the Football Federation said prosecutor Stefano Palazzi had charged a total of 30 "subjects" for sporting fraud and violations of fairness and probity, charges which can be punished by fines, bans and relegations.

The statement did not give a further breakdown of who was charged or identify individuals.

MILAN (AFX) - Juventus Football Club SpA, Milan AC, Lazio SS and AC Fiorentina risk being relegated from the first division Serie A to minor leagues following an investigation into alleged match rigging, La Repubblica and other dailies reported.

According to the reports, the Italian football league could decide as soon as today to hold a trial starting June 27 and ending July 20, a month before the championship resumes on Aug 26.

Juventus could end up in Serie B with a nine point handicap or in Serie C, while the other three clubs could be relegated to Serie B, La Repubblica said.

La Stampa said there is concern that the decision to go ahead with the trial could affect the morale of the Italian national team which is scheduled to play a crucial match tomorrow against the Czech Republic to qualify for the second round of the World Cup in Germany.

Haven't Fiorentina just recovered from being relegated due to financial problems?

Will they really have the balls to relegate Milan and Juve?

Inter and Roma must be throwing a huge party.

Hopefully Fiorentina will be permanently liquidated if found guilty. It's beyond a joke how they were allowed to re-enter the Italian league after their previous indesacretions and now are in Serie A as if nothing ever happened.

In the 1934 World Cup, Italy were secured "friendly" referees on the orders of Mussolini. Luckily, there hasn't been a whiff of scandal about Italian football since....

According to 5live yes. The prosecutor wants it all over before the World Cup final also so there is a real chance that Italy will make the final with half a team from Serie B.

Very serious this one...and now the AC chairman is no longer in charge of the country who knows what will happen.

I think a lot of players will move clubs, what will be interesting will be to see that if it were to happen whether Juve will be stripped of the Championship.

Ibrahimovic and Buffon are two players that have been investigated.

Buffon was interviewed and Zlatan had his house turned over.

In that same world cup Mussolini nationalised two Argentinians, a Uruguayan and 4 Brazilians only months before the World Cup too...

Great news if it means Inter get the title at last. Any coincidence that this has broken after Berlusconi lost power?

I've just heard that none of the people on trial are players.

Rumours coming out of Brazil are that Kaka is all set to sign for Real Madrid.

Typical of Madrid to go for the attacking players. Surely they should be after some of the more defensive players that would become available. Emerson, Viera or Gattuso perhaps.

Clubs are allowed to "set up" again in the place of the old club, but they have to start a league lower than they would be in. The ruled was chanced after the Fiorentina incident, as they were amde to drop to the bottom. That no longer happens. Torino reformed and started in Serie B last season, after dropping from Serie A.
