Shock as Manchester City banned from Two Champions League Season

Manchester City have been banned from the UEFA competition for the next two season after they were found in breach of Financial Fair Play (FFP) compliance process. FFP were established to prevent professional football clubs spending more than they earn in the pursuit of success and in doing so getting into financial problems which might threaten their long-term survival.

They were further fined £25m for deceiving the European football Governing body. Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) had opened their investigation on March 2019 after allegations of breach of FFP rules by German publication Del Spiegel.

The leaked emails appeared that ManCity owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan funded  the huge annual sponsorship  of £67.5 m. One of the leaked emails suggested that only £8m of that sponsorship in 2015-16 was funded directly by Etihad and the rest was coming from Mansour’s own company vehicle for the ownership of City, the Abu Dhabi United Group.

The league giants responded that they shall appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sports “at the earliest opportunity.”

Should ManCity ban be upheld they will be set to face a two year ban (2020/2021 and 2021/2022).

  1. Hey there 🙂

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me
    asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t
    mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would
    appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the
    works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care
    of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

  2. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great graphics
    or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the
    best in its niche. Very good blog!
