The Football Association has challenged
FIFA's verdict in relation to Chelsea's transfer ban, with their appeal
to be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport next month.
The FA had previously indicated their intention to appeal after being
fined as part of the ruling which also saw Chelsea punished for
breaches of rules relating to the international transfer and
registration of players under the age of 18.
The case is now listed on the CAS schedule to be heard on 26 June.
In February 2019, Chelsea were handed a transfer ban for two windows
and fined, although both punishments were later reduced on appeal with
the club permitted to sign players again this January.
The FA was initially fined 510 000 Swiss francs (£391 000 at the time), reduced to 350 000 Swiss francs on appeal.
The governing body was also given six months "to address the
situation concerning the international transfer and first registration
of minors in football".
However, the FA responded by saying it would appeal and would
"continue to work with FIFA and Chelsea in a constructive manager to
address the issues which were raised by this case."
