Chelsea lodge appeal of FIFA transfer ban over youth signings

Chelsea Appeals FIFA Two Year Transfer Ban

Chelsea Appeals FIFA Two Year Transfer Ban

Federation Internationale de Football Association has received Chelsea's appeal against a one-year transfer ban, though has not decided on Tuesday whether to freeze the sanction during the legal process and clear the club to sign players in the offseason.

Chelsea were also fined 600,000 Swiss Francs (600,000 United States dollars) after Federation Internationale de Football Association found 29 breaches of regulations in their investigation the signing of Under-18 players by the club.

Chelsea have previously stated that they "categorically refute the findings of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee".

"As a general rule we do not make comparisons with previous cases".

"Any decision on the sanction remaining in place during the appeal process is to be taken by the chairman of the FIFA Appeal Committee", a statement from the world governing body read.

It is unlikely that there are grounds to get the sanction overturned but there is precedent - more on that later - that the club might be able to get the sanction reduced, or even delayed.

The English club was fined £460,000 as well as handed a two-window transfer ban for while the FA was fined £390,000.

The club argued that numerous individual cases highlighted involved players on short-term trials who were not signed, and ultimately FIFA's judgement related to alleged breaches regarding only 29 players.

Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have all been sanctioned for similar offences. However, Barcelona were given a six-month reprieve after the club lodged an appeal which allowed them to sign Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic, Jeremy Mathieu, Thomas Vermaelen, Claudio Bravo and Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

"The Disciplinary Committee sanctioned Chelsea with a ban on registering new players at both national and global level for the next two (2) complete and consecutive registration periods".

Some of the cases involved players under the age of 18 spending too much time on trial at Chelsea while not registered with England's soccer federations, which was also fined by FIFA.
