The English Football Association’s appeal against FIFA in relation to a 2019 Chelsea transfer ban and fine will be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on June 26.

The FA was fined £428,695, later reduced to £290,000, last year for a breach of the rules involving the international transfer and first registration of minors.

Chelsea Football Club was handed a two-window ban at the time but the CAS halved that on appeal in December and also reduced their fine.

FIFA had declared Chelsea in breach of the regulations in the case of 29 players after a lengthy investigation into registration at academy level.

The arbitrator found only “about a third of the violations” declared by FIFA and said many were not as serious as maintained.

The FA said it would appeal the punishment and would “continue to work with FIFA and Chelsea in a constructive manner to address the issues which were raised by this case.”
