Man City banned from all UEFA competitions for next two seasons

It will go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). That isn't a football court and isn't run by football authorities. If they lose there, Man City could appeal to the real courts in Switzerland, but they would look at whether CAS had followed procedure not whether they were right or wrong in the merits of the case. They would be very unlikely to succeed in real court. If they want to challenge the UEFA procedures, they need to do that at CAS.

Again, I'm not sure they can be trusted. Having read a lot of the ties in in sport, such as the same people being involved in things like Olympic committees and FIFA it can only be a matter of time before some one goes to a real court.

You might not trust them, but sport does. The vast majority of sports organisations including FIFA, UEFA, the EPL, the FA and Man City are all signed up to CAS. CAS has a legal status. As I said, appeals can be made to the Swiss courts, but they are almost always lost unless CAS have made in mistake in their process. Clubs can't just go around CAS to 'real courts'.

 

Wikipedia has a pretty good summary of this in the jurisdiction and appeals section of the CAS entry.

Manchester City face large financial losses if CAS uphold UEFA's two-year European ban and deprive them of Champions League income.

A financial squeeze would restrict their ability to buy and pay players, leading to an almost inevitable decline in the quality of their squad — and results.

This is just one ramification of the ban, with UEFA citing 'serious breaches' of Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules up to 2016 and City's failure to cooperate with an investigation.

City's most recent financial accounts, for the 2018-19 season, show revenue of £535million and a small profit of £10.1m. But those revenues included about £100m from the Champions League, comprised of £86m in prize cash from UEFA, plus match day and hospitality income from five home CL matches of more than £10m. Other commercial income related to Europe was also included.

Losing out on that £100m would have led to a £90m loss. The impact would be similar if a ban is in force for 2020-21, but intensify if a ban ran to two years.

City have also been handed a €30m (£25m) fine, which they will appeal.

If City post losses from next season, they could fall foul of FFP again – for spending more than they earn. The simplest remedy would be to sell players, which would raise income and cut a wage bill that stood at £315m last season.

A two-year ban would raise the prospect of manager Pep Guardiola leaving, while the club's best players might also consider their futures.

Whether some of City's major 'global partners', including Puma and Nissan, would seek to renegotiate terms is not known. 

For a club of their size, City earn an unusually high sum from commercial income: last season it was £229m — much higher than rivals Liverpool (£186m) and Chelsea (£185m), both 'bigger' clubs who have won the Champions League and have larger global fanbases.

City's commercial income is so large because £130m comes from sponsors based in the UAE, where club owner Sheikh Mansour has huge influence on City's partners. Etihad alone is believed to pay £80m a year to sponsor City's shirts and campus, while telecoms firm Etislat pay about £16.5m and Visit Abu Dhabi £19.75m.

The Korean tyre firm Nexen pay £10m a year to be City's sleeve sponsor, having entered into a 'strategic partnership' with the UAE's sovereign wealth fund Mubadala.

Documents published by German magazine Der Spiegel last year indicated that in 2015 Etihad was, in fact, only paying £8m towards a then £67.5m annual deal with City, while Mansour was topping up the other £59.5m himself. If confirmed as accurate, that would breach FFP.

A big mess.

 

Manchester City sent eight lawyers to the CAS appeal, while UEFA sent two - sending a message. City referred to this operation as “CAS One”, which strongly suggests they always knew there would be a “CAS Two”

Manchester City have been keeping a studious eye on their European rivals’ financial activities since they have been under investigation. They have been taking notes on transfer expenditure, and clubs receiving extra funds from sponsors.Manchester City believes this is just a beginning.

The best part here for me is Steven Gerrard:

 

Steven Gerrard admits he is "really interested" to see if action is taken against Manchester City which could see them stripped of their Premier League title in 2014.

 

Oh the irony.

So Chelsea take them to court and probably win with the backing of a Russian billionaire, followed by Man City backed by and entire country, that's how ridiculous this has all become.

 

PSG must be next in line and then we have the two Spanish giants. 

 

Just let them get on with it - its an absolute farce the champions league now, should rename it the super rich clubs cup! The UEFA cup has more value to it in terms of sporting achievement.

Perhaps but If I were him I wouldn't hold my breath on the EPL/FA doing anything. After all they did virtually nothing to West Ham after the Mascherano/Tevez scandal came to light.
