CAS will announce its decision on the appealed filed by Man City against UEFA ban in July
The Court of Arbitration for Sport, CAS, will announce its decision on the appeal lodged by Manchester City against their ban from European competitions in July.
The three-day hearing between City and UEFA was conducted by video conference and ended on Wednesday.
A statement from CAS following the hearing read: “At the end of the hearing, both parties expressed their satisfaction with respect to the conduct of the procedure.
The panel of arbitrators in charge of the matter, composed of Mr Rui Botica Santos (Portugal), president, Prof. UIrich Haas (Germany) and Mr Andrew McDougall QC (France), will start its deliberations and prepare the Arbitral award containing their decision.
“This decision is expected to be issued during the first half of July, the exact date will be communicated in advance.”
Manchester City were appealing UEFA’s decision in February to ban them from European competitions for two years and fine them £25m for “serious breaches” of the Financial Fair Play, FFP, regulations between 2012 and 2016.
If Man City finish in the top four and their ban is upheld by CAS, it would mean a Champions League place would go to the team who finishes fifth in the Premier League.
