CAS overrules UEFA, lets Bursaspor play in Europe
The Court of Arbitration for Sport says Turkish club Bursaspor
can play in the Europa League next season, after ruling that an
initial ban handed out by UEFA should be suspended.
In May, UEFA banned Bursaspor for failing to settle unpaid
transfer fees, a breach of UEFA’s financial fair play rules. But it
also reduced an earlier fine for the breach.
The CAS verdict released Friday says that UEFA’s ban is now
suspended for ”a probationary period of three years” and that it
”can participate” in the 2012-13 Europa League.
However, CAS says the club’s fine is increased.
