BREAKING NEWS: Manchester City Win Appeal on Two-Year Ban from European Competition

Share

Manchester City’s Champions League ban has been lifted on appeal to the Court of Arbitration (CAS).

THE Premier League club were banned from European football for two years in February after UEFA found they had committed ‘serious breaches’ of its Financial Fair Play regulations. Manchester City repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and dismissed the probe as “flawed” and “prejudicial.” The club later lodged an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in the hopes of still being able to take part in the competition. The club will pay a reduced fine but are free to compete in European football next season

A statement from the club read: “Whilst Manchester City and its legal advisers are yet to review the full ruling by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), the club welcomes the implications of today’s ruling as a validation of the club’s position and the body of evidence that it was able to present.”

Man City had long maintained they had no case to answer and were confident of winning the case following a three-day appeal hearing via videolink last month.
