CAS hears Man City’s appeal against CL ban June

Manchester City’s appeal against the club’s two-year ban from European football will be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on June 8-10.

UEFA handed down the punishment, which included a €30 million fine (£25m/$33m), to the Premier League champions in February for breaching Financial Fair Play rules.

The Adjudicatory Chamber of UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) found City guilty of “overstating its sponsorship revenue” between 2012 and 2016 in order to meet break-even rules.

European football’s governing body began the investigation after a series of allegations were published by German magazine Der Spiegel in November 2018, which drew on documents purportedly obtained by whistleblowers Football Leaks.

City vehemently deny the allegations and accused UEFA of making its decision before the investigation had even begun.

They also promised to appeal the decision “at the earliest opportunity”, with chief executive Ferran Soriano insisting all of the money put into the club has always been “properly declared”.

CAS confirmed it had registered Manchester City’s appeal on February 26, less than two weeks after the ban was handed down.

The appeals process usually involves an exchange of written submissions between the parties, with a panel of CAS arbitrators deliberating the issue at a hearing before delivering its decision in the form of an arbitration award.

By scheduling the hearing for early June, CAS should ensure City’s fate is decided before the scheduled resumption of the Premier League following the coronavirus shutdown, tentatively pencilled in for June 12, meaning there are no complications regarding qualification for next season’s European competitions.(Goal.com)

  1. My partner and I stumbled over here by a different page and thought I may as well check things out.
    I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to going over your web page yet again.

  2. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister
    stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has
    83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video to make
    your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting
    videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  4. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for
    my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
