Barca get date for Fifa transfer ban appeal

Barcelona’s appeal against a one-year transfer ban imposed by Fifa for breaking youth transfer rules will be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on December 5. CAS says it will give a fast-track verdict before the transfer window opens in January. Barcelona protected itself against another possible legal defeat by signing extra players in the off-season window. Fifa allowed that by suspending the transfer ban in April while its appeals panel processed the case.

The case emerged in February 2013 when Fifa blocked Barcelona from selecting youngsters from South Korea, France, Nigeria and Cameroon for competitive matches.
