Manchester City’s Champions League ban lifted
Earlier in February 2020 Manchester City was sentenced to a two-year suspension from playing Champions League. The suspension was due to a breach of UEFA’s rules on financial fair play (FFP). The rules are there to prevent the clubs’ financial situation from being decisive for the success of the league.
The suspension has now been lifted and they can play in the Champions League again.
The board of Manchester City has always denied the accusations and is now also right in court. The tone has been harsh between the parties, as City accused UEFA of being biased in the case and that they oppose the club.
In addition to the suspension, the club was fined €30 million, which is now also reduced to €10 million.
