The Sports Arbitral Tribunal (CAS) will announce its decision on Monday 13 July in the arbitration procedure between Manchester City and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). The English club will then know if it is excluded or not from the European Cups for two years.
The CAS will publish a press release on its website at 10:30 a.m., the Lausanne-based institution said on Friday.
Manchester City, where Kevin De Bruyne plays, was given a two-year suspension on February 14 and a fine of 30 million, imposed by UEFA. The European body concluded with “serious infringements” of the club compared to the rules of financial fair play. UEFA accuses the club of having overvalued its advertising revenues for the period 2012-2016.
The English club appealed to the CAS. In June, a hearing was held by videoconference with the two parties.
Manchester City is second in the Premier League. If the sanction is confirmed, the ‘Cityzens’ will not be able to participate in the next Champions League.
