Lausanne, 21 June 2016 – The Albanian football club Klubi Sportiv Skenderbeu has filed an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against the decision issued by the UEFA Appeals Body on 1 June 2016 (the UEFA Decision) in which it was declared ineligible to participate in the UEFA Champions League competition 2016/2017 following an investigation into alleged match-fixing. KS Skenderbeu seeks a ruling from the CAS overturning the UEFA decision and declaring its eligibility to compete in the UEFA Champions League competition 2016/2017. The parties have agreed to stay the execution of the UEFA Decision while the CAS arbitration is in progress and to put in place an expedited procedural timetable which will allow the CAS to render a decision, at the latest, on 6 July 2016. In the meantime, the CAS will not comment any further on this matter.
