Chelsea appeal against ban

Mar 7, 2019-

Chelsea have appealed against the one-year transfer ban handed to the Premier League giants, FIFA confirmed on Tuesday, but will have to wait to discover whether the ban will be temporarily lifted pending the outcome of the appeal. Last month the club were issued with a two-window registration ban and fined over £460,000 by FIFA’s disciplinary committee over the recruitment of 29 foreign players aged under 18. Chelsea immediately said they “categorically refute the findings” but having now appealed, they must await a decision from FIFA’s appeal committee about whether there will be an easing of restrictions ahead of a hearing being convened. Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona have all been sanctioned for similar offences, but all three managed to delay the ban pending appeal to allow them extra time to prepare. (AFP)
