CAS Deems Man City’s FFP Appeal Inadmissible’.

Manchester City’s appeal against UEFA’s investigation into alleged breaches of Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations has been ruled “inadmissible” by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

The Premier League champions lodged proceedings with CAS in June after UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) referred their case to its adjudicatory chamber.

The CFCB’s investigatory chamber opened a probe into City in March following allegations the club broke rules relating to FFP, third-party ownership and youth player recruitment in articles by German publication Der Spiegel , which drew upon documents purportedly obtained by whistleblowers Football Leaks .

When UEFA referred their case in May, City said in a statement: “The accusation of financial irregularities remains entirely false and the CFCB IC referral ignores a comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence provided by Manchester City FC.”

In a media release on Thursday, CAS explained City’s appeal was not admissible because UEFA has not reached a final decision in the case.
