Uefa have announced that Premier League champions Manchester City have been banned from the Champions League for the next two seasons.

If Manchester City lose their appeal then the team which finished fifth in the Premier League might qualify for next season's Champions League.

Sad thing is if they lose their appeal we won't even make top 5.

Could make Europa League qualification a better hope though.
If City win the Carabao Cup – they play Aston Villa in the final next month – and the FA Cup is won by a club which finishes in the top six, then as far as eighth spot in the Premier League will be enough to earn Europa League qualification.

Just win the next 13 games … like 1997/98 season.
Arteta will be a legend then.

This is the realistic possibility.

If the ban sticks, it will mostly mean United or Chelsea getting into UCL. Spurs will finish 4th.

City might just collapse and finish out of the top 4 as well.

My main take on this is if the bans sticks. Pep will be gone from City.

We can still realistically finish 5th, even 4th if just looking at the pts differences. But obviously the way we've been all season, our form is very unlikely to pick up that drastically for it to happen.

I don't care too much because it's city, but I think it's a bit draconian when you consider what other clubs have been up to and got away with it.

Their English titles should be stripped. This is not too different from match fixing. You are literally buying the league. Hope PSG gets a ban too. And madrid who is bank rolled by government. Fking cheats all of them.

Most likely. They have enough lawyers to drag this out.

I was listening to the radio and someone said the ban stands until they win an appeal. I don't know when the appeal will happen. I tend to agree that they'll get away with it, the rich always do. Apparently, a lot of smaller clubs have incurred sanctions, but we don't hear about them.

The charge seems to be about MCitys inflated valuation of its profits and so, to its ability to spend.
One would think that the FA might be looking into this situation as well.

Abu Dhabi just have to threaten to shift its banking to Luxembourg, to Frankfurt and warn France they are going to lose a hefty chunk of investment … and UAE will snub Airbus and buy Boeing ..

Think of the political pressure that UAE, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia can exert on EU and indirectly UEFA.

And also warn UEFA to take similar action against Qatar-owned PSG.

Final warning to UEFA - Emirates and Etihad will stop all advertisements and sponsorships with European clubs … and banned all lucrative European club friendlies in UAE.

Think UEFA will not bow to this kind of punitive financial and political pressures exerted by Abu Dhabi and rest of UAE?

That would be brilliant. We can get rid of the Emirates Stadium tag and name the ground after something to do with our club or the local area.

I'll start the ball rolling with The Arsene Wenger Colosseum.

Manchester City's bid to overturn their European ban could end with Liverpool in the dock over allegations that the Premier League champions-elect hacked into the Etihad's scouting database.

Another 4 or 5 to ban and we could get C/League (Sm22)

Where is the source for that?

Sounds like that was settled at the time from 2013.

A Time Line of this situation
Manchester City are facing an uncertain immediate future in European competition after UEFA announced a two-season ban for the Premier League club on February 14.

European football's chief governing body, who also administered a €30million fine, ruled City were guilty of "serious breaches" of its Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.

It marked the end of a lengthy probe into City's financial affairs, which was launched following a series of allegations made by German publication Der Spiegel in November 2018.

City denied any wrongdoing throughout the process and immediately announced their intention to appeal against the decision.

Below we take a look back at how this point was reached.




November 2018: Football Leaks allegations emerge

It has been 15 months since Der Spiegel published a host of articles claiming the defending Premier League champions flagrantly flouted UEFA's FFP laws. The German publication purportedly gained the information from whistleblowers Football Leaks and claimed Sheikh Mansour's City regime topped up multi-million-pound sponsorship deals with Abu Dhabi companies, using their owner's fortune, to meet the financial rules. It was also claimed City were cut a favourable deal by UEFA for overspending in 2014. City said in response: "The attempt to damage the club's reputation is organised and clear".

November 2018: UEFA warns City FFP investigation could reopen

UEFA said it would consider reopening a 2014 probe, which saw City fined and have restrictions on the size of Champions League squad imposed, if "new information comes to light". Early in December, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said: "We are assessing the situation. We have an independent body working on it. Very soon you will have an answer on what will happen in this concrete case."

March 2019: UEFA launches formal investigation

It was almost a year ago UEFA formally started an investigation into Der Spiegel's allegations, with Club Financial Control Board chairman and former Belgium prime minister Yves Leterme warning the "heaviest punishment" City face is "expulsion from UEFA competitions". City said: "The accusation of financial irregularities are entirely false. The club's published accounts are full and complete and a matter of legal and regulatory record".

May 2019: City respond to ban reports

After reports emerged in the New York Times that City were facing the prospect of a one-year UEFA ban, the club released a statement registering concern that their "good faith" in UEFA's investigation into their financial affairs could be "misplaced".

May 2019: "Hostile process" slammed by City

Leterme had earlier in the year told Belgian magazine Sport and Strategy that City should face a ban from UEFA competition if the allegations were proven. A strongly worded club statement slammed the CFCB investigation as a "hostile process" after the probe was referred to the body's adjudicatory chamber for a final decision after the completion of Leterme's inquiry. The club said they were "disappointed but regrettably not surprised" by the decision.

November 2019: Reports say City set to avoid ban

Towards the back end of last year, it was reported UEFA was struggling to enforce its FFP regulations and City could avoid a ban and escape only with a fine.

November 2019: CAS deems City appeal 'inadmissible'

In June last year, City appealed against UEFA's investigation into alleged breaches of FFP to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). However, five months later CAS ruled City's appeal as "inadmissible" because UEFA had not reached a final decision on the case.

February 2020: UEFA announces ban

After a lengthy process, UEFA announced City have been hit with a two-year ban from European competition and a hefty €30million fine. The Adjudicatory Chamber of the CFCB found City guilty of "overstating its sponsorship revenue in its accounts and in the break-even information submitted to UEFA between 2012 and 2016".

February 26, 2020: City launch appeal

CAS confirms City have lodged an appeal although could not say when a verdict would be reached.
