The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) dismissed the urgent appeal filed by Klubi Sportiv Skenderbeu against the decision issued by the UEFA Appeals Body on 1 June 2016 (the UEFA Decision) in which the Albanian club was declared ineligible to participate in the UEFA Champions League competition 2016/2017 following an investigation into match-fixing. KS Skenderbeu was seeking a ruling from the CAS overturning the UEFA decision and declaring its eligibility to compete in the UEFA Champions League competition 2016/2017. The parties had agreed to an expedited arbitration procedure with a hearing on 4 July 2016 in Lausanne. The CAS Panel in charge of this matter has dismissed the appeal and has confirmed the UEFA decision of 1 June 2016. The arbitral award with the grounds will be notified to the parties concerned in a few weeks and will be published on the CAS website.
