Lausanne - Mohamed bin Hammam will challenge FIFA in a two-day hearing in April at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in a bid to overturn his life ban for alleged election bribery.

CAS has set April 18-19 to hear the case.

Bin Hammam, who denies wrongdoing, is involved in a second appeal to stop the Asian Football Confederation from replacing him as president.

He has been seeking CAS verdicts before the Asian body is legally obliged to hold an election on May 29.

The Qatari candidate withdrew his bid after the scandal emerged last May.
