Chelsea takes appeal to CAS

Chelsea have put through an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) after a two-window transfer ban was imposed by FIFA.

The West London club failed with a first appeal after the ban issued in February was upheld by FIFA following an investigation into the club’s signing of foreign U18 players. It was found that Chelsea had breached FIFA regulations by acquiring 29 foreign minors of the 92 inspected.

The suspension means Chelsea are not allowed to buy players until the end of January 2020, consequently missing out on two-transfer windows. However, the club have claimed their innocence and appealed the decision to CAS in addition to their £460,000 fine.

The blues are hoping the ruling will be overturned or frozen which will allow them to register new players during the offseason transfer window closing 8 August. CAS announced the registered appeal and commented, "It is not possible to say at this time when the Arbitral Award will be issued".
