Manchester City have set out their case to overturn a two season Champions League ban.
The Premier League champions were sanctioned by you UEFA in February for an alleged breach of Financial Fair Play regulations, with the ban accompanied by a fine of €30m.
UEFA concluded that City had committed a serious breach of club licencing and FFP rules by overstating its sponsorship revenue in its accounts and in the breakeven information submitted to UEFA between 2012 and 2016.
City immediately indicated their intention to appeal against what they said was a ‘flawed and consistently leaked process’ at Sport’s highest court, the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Manchester City’s appeal will be heard from Monday, in a somewhat unprecedented three-day case.
It’s understood an outcome will be decided before the Champions League resumes again in August.
