Manchester City UEFA Champions League ban has been lifted after club appeal.

The citizens will now play in the Champions League next season after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) accepted Manchester City appeal and lifted the club’s two-year ban from European football.

Man City were handed the suspension by UEFA’s club financial control body (CFCB) in February for “serious breaches” of club licensing and financial fair play regulations.

However the Premier League club denied any wrongdoing and appealed the decision at CAS last month, after previously describing the UEFA disciplinary process as “prejudicial”.

After hearing evidence over the course of three days in June, CAS has now overturned Man City suspension and the initial €30m fine to €10m (£8.96m) after finding “most of the alleged breaches reported were either not established or time-barred”
