Manchester City have lost their attempt to block a UEFA investigation into financial fair play violations.
City had asked the Court of Arbitration for Sport [CAS] to throw out the financial fair play case that had been brought against the club by UEFA.
But CAS has dismissed City’s appeal, which pre-empted the case being heard by the adjudicatory chamber of UEFA’s Club Financial Control Board.
“CAS ruled that the appeal filed by Manchester City football club is inadmissible,” CAS General Secretary Matthieu Reeb said.
Premier League champions City lodged their appeal in June against an investigation by UEFA into potential breaches by the club of its financial fair play policy.
