AC Milan’s legal battle with UEFA continues. Last week it was announced that the highest administrative body of European football have suspended all proceedings against Milan regarding Financial Fair Play violations until the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne (CAS) decides about the ongoing appeal from last year.
However, it seems that this judgment seems further away than one would expect. The official website of CAS updated their calendar of hearings scheduled until August 14th and there is no hearing set for the Milan-UEFA case regarding the appeal presented by the club in December last year.
This means that the scheduling is proceeding according to the urgent procedures that the Lausanne-based court has received and, consequently, that the Rossoneri have not submitted a request to speed up the times.
Thus, as things stand, the arbitration concerning the sanctions for the three-year period of 2014-17, could be discussed at the beginning of the season. In that case, it is almost certain that the club will feature in the Europa League, as the group stage draw takes place at the end of August.
