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.
