    Manchester City are set to find out whether or not their two-year European ban will be upheld on 13 July, after they appealed the decision last month.

    UEFA confirmed in February that City had been banned from all UEFA competitions for the next two seasons as a result of Financial Fair Play (FFP) breaches, while the Sky Blues were also fined €30m (£25m) for misleading UEFA.

    In early June, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) heard City’s appeal against the decision, while a final decision was expected to be made in the first half of July. The Daily Mail now report that City will learn their fate on 13 July.

    A decision was expected to be made and announced on 10 July, but UEFA have decided against this date as they wished to avoid clashing with the draw for the Champions League quarter-finals, semi-finals and final.

    Of course, the final decision will have massive repercussions for Man City. Most notably, should the ban be upheld, the issue of convincing players to stay put despite the lack of European football for two seasons has been raised, while the Citizens will also miss out on the revenue that comes with the competitions.

    Additionally, as has previously been noted, should the ban remain in place, the team that finishes in fifth place in the Premier League in 2019/20 will secure Champions League football for the 2020/21 campaign.

    At this moment in time, all possibilities cannot be ruled out, but ‘serious questions’ of UEFA’s FFP system will be asked if the ban is overturned. Manchester City have continued to remain confident the decision will be overturned, with the club said to have ‘irrefutable evidence’ that will leave CAS with no choice but to reverse the decision.
