Russian clubs file appeal with CAS to overturn European ban | Soccer News


MOSCOW: Russia’s four main clubs have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to overturn a ban blocking them from European competition next season.
European football governing body UEFA this month extended until 2022/2023 its suspension of Russian teams from participating in the Champions League and all other European competitions imposed following the invasion of Ukraine by the country.
In response, Moscow-based CSKA announced on Friday that they, along with Zenit Saint Petersburg, Dinamo and Sochi, had filed an appeal with CAS, the sport’s highest court based in Switzerland.
“All clubs have requested an expedited review of the complaint,” CSKA said.
CSKA “strives to play in European competition and will fight for the top places in the championship until the very end”, added the club.
Russian clubs and national teams were suspended “until further notice” by UEFA in February after the country sent troops to neighboring Ukraine.
In March, the Russian Football Union launched appeals against the suspension of national teams and clubs from all FIFA and UEFA competitions.
CAS upheld UEFA’s decision, while Russia dropped its challenge to FIFA’s ban.
