CAS to hear FA appeal against FIFA in June
LONDON: The English Football Association The appeal against the world soccer organization FIFA in relation to a 2019 Chelsea the transfer ban and the fine will be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport ( CAS ) the 26th of June.
The FA was fined 510,000 Swiss francs ($ 524,637), which was then reduced to 350,000, last year for a violation of the rules involving international transfer and the first registration of minors.
Premier league club Chelsea were handed a two-window ban at the time but the CAS halved that on appeal in December and also reduced their fine.
FIFA had declared Chelsea in breach of the regulations in the case of 29 players after a lengthy investigation into registration at academy level.
The arbitrator found only about a third of the violations declared by FIFA and said many were not as serious as maintained.
