Man City have got the ball rolling with the Court of Arbitration for Sport as they look to get their two-year Champions League ban overturned after being punished by UEFA
WManchester City's appeal against UEFA's two-year Champions League ban has been lodged with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
The Premier League champions were given a heavy punishment by Europe's governing body as they also fined them £25m.
City maintain they have done nothing wrong and are confident that the ban will be overturned and have now begun the process - although CAS have been unable to put a time frame on the appeal.
A statement read: "The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has registered an appeal filed by Manchester City football club against the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).
"The appeal is directed against the decision of the Adjudicatory Chamber of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) dated 14 February 2020 in which Manchester City was deemed to have contravened UEFA’s Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations and sanctioned with exclusion from the next two seasons of UEFA club competitions for which the club would qualify and ordered to pay a fine of EUR 30 million.
"Generally speaking, CAS appeal arbitration procedures involve an exchange of written submissions between the parties while a Panel of CAS arbitrators is being convened. Once the Panel has been formally constituted it issues procedural directions, including, inter alia, with respect to the holding of a hearing. Following the hearing, the Panel deliberates and then issues its decision in the form of an Arbitral Award.
"It is not possible to indicate at this time when a final award in this matter will be issued."
