CAS confirmed: ManCity files suit against European Cup exclusion

As expected, English champions Manchester City have appealed to the International Court of Justice for Sport (CAS) against the two-year European Cup suspension imposed by the European Football Union (UEFA). CAS confirmed in a statement on Wednesday that it had received a corresponding complaint.

The complaint is directed against the decision of UEFA’s independent financial control body of 14 February, which imposed the ban on City, together with a fine of 30 million euros, it said. CAS further announced that it could not yet foresee when it would reach a decision in this case.
