The FIFA Appeals Commission has decided in part to appeal Chelsea FC's appeal against the FIFA Disciplinary Commission's decision to penalize the club with a ban on registering new national and international players for the next two full and consecutive matches to confirm login times. This ban applied to the entire club – with the exception of women's and futsal teams – and did not prevent the release of players.
In relation to all men's teams the ban on registering new players both nationally and internationally has been upheld by the FIFA Appeals Commission for two registration periods, with the following exception:
The FIFA Appeals Commission considers that the misconduct of Chelsea's intention was not to respect the prohibition of international transfer or the initial registration of foreign minors. In the Committee's view, the introduction of a registration ban on every minor would be disproportionate to the offense committed.
The FIFA Appeals Commission therefore ruled that the prohibition on youth categories does not apply to the registration of minor players under the age of 1
The FIFA Appointment Commission has also upheld the fine of CHF 600,000. The decision of the FIFA Appointment Commission has been communicated.
