OYOGist.com has learned that the English Football Association is ready to battle FIFA in court over Chelsea’s transfer ban and their involvement next month.
It should be recalled that Chelsea and FA were both sanctioned for breaches relating to the international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18 in February, 2019, although, Chelsea’s ban and fine were reduced following an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
FA on the other hand, was fined 350,000 Swiss francs but was later reduced to [£290,000] on appeal while FIFA also gave the body six months to address the situation concerning the international transfer and first registration of minors in football last year.
The highest court in sport will consider the FA’s complaint on June 26 over FIFA’s disciplinary processes. The FA said, “it would appeal the punishment and would continue to work with FIFA and Chelsea in a constructive manager to address the issues which were raised by this case.”
