The Football Association of England has filed a lawsuit against FIFA over the penalty given to Chelsea – not allowing it to transfer players during the transfer window. The trial is set to begin next summer. After Chelsea successfully halved the sentence imposed by FIFA last summer, now the Football Federation of England will continue the legal battle against FIFA after the court hearing in the Court of Arbitration for Sport was decided on June 26.
Chelsea had been fined and decided not to allow players to be transferred for two transitional periods, but the club’s successful appeal had halved the penalty in just one transfer window. The English giants and the Football Federation were both fined by FIFA for violating the rights related to international transfers and registering players under the age of 18.
FIFA had given the Football Federation of England six months to address the issue of these violations, while the English Federation had made it clear that it wanted to continue the legal battle, as it wanted to address all the problems mentioned in it. case. Now the court hearing will take place through a video conference or through written statements.
