The reigning Premier League champions were handed a two-year Champions League ban after they were found guilty of breaching UEFA’s financial regulations.
Provided the Court of Arbitration for Sport upholds UEFA’s decision to ban them for two years, Man City could still be able to play in next season’s Champions League.
The reigning Premier League champions were locked out of Europe’s elite club competition for two years and fined €30m by UEFA’s investigative chamber after the club was found guilty of breaking financial fair play rules and misleading the European football’s governing body.
The severity of the unprecedented ban left City with little choice but to fail a review application in the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The Premier League club further responded that it was ‘’ disappointed but not surprised” by the decision.
