Chelsea appeal transfer ban to Court of Arbitration for Sport(CAS)

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) have confirmed that Chelsea have appealed the two-window transfer ban they were handed by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

They are also appealing a £460,000 fine, which was part of the punishment for being found guilty on 29 charges.

The club refuted FIFA's findings and had said last month they would appeal the decision to the CAS.

"Following the hearing, if one is held (a CAS Panel may also issue a decision based only on the parties' written submissions), the Panel deliberates and then issues its decision in the form of an Arbitral Award".

"CAS will not provide any further information in relation to this procedure, expect to issue a Media Release announcing the Panel's decision".

The appeal process remains in its early stages and Chelsea are yet to try and have the ban frozen for this summer's transfer window.

The west London club were slapped with a year-long ban on recruitment after breaching rules regarding the signings of foreign minors.

The transfer window closes on 8 August and the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) said "it is not possible" to say when it will make a decision.

However, CAS confirmed to Omnisport that Chelsea have not requested to delay the ban.

Football's governing body handed down the sanction after finding the Premier League club to have breached regulations relating to the global transfer and registration of players aged under 18.

It comes after an investigation into the club's signing of foreign U18 players with Chelsea now not able to register them until the summer of 2020.

They signed United States winger Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund for £58m in January, before their ban was imposed in February.
