Man City avoid transfer ban as FIFA impose fine on champions


Date published: Tuesday 13th August 2019 5:40

Manchester City have avoided a transfer ban despite admitting to breaching regulations relating to the international transfer and registration of under-18 players.

The Premier League champions have instead been fined 370,000 Swiss francs (£314,650) by FIFA after breaching article 19, among others, of the world governing body’s regulations on the status and transfer of players.

A FIFA statement said: “The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has sanctioned English club Manchester City FC for breaches relating to the international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18.

Manchester CityFC was found to have breached, amongst others, article 19 of the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.

“The Disciplinary Committee took into account the fact that Manchester City FC accepted its responsibility and sanctioned the club with a fine of 370,000 [Swiss francs].

“The protection of minors is a key element in FIFA’s overall regulatory framework relating to the transfer of players, and the effective enforcement of these rules is paramount, as has also been confirmed on various occasions by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

“The decision issued by the Disciplinary Committee was notified today.”
