As it is known, Francesco Angelini appealed to the National Court of Arbitration for Sport against the Italian Bridge Federation (FIGB). The matter of appeal was the statement of November 30, 2010 by which the CNG (National Tournament Committee) disqualified Angelini Team from 2010 Club Team Championship (Campionato Societario).
