Manchester City will be in the Champions League next season after their two-year ban from UEFA competitions was overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

City were initially hit with a two-year suspension from all UEFA competitions, plus a £25 million fine, for ‘serious breaches’ of Financial Fair Play rules.

A statement from City read: ‘Whilst Manchester City and its legal advisors are yet to review the full ruling by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), the Club welcomes the implications of today’s ruling as a validation of the Club’s position and the body of evidence that it was able to present.

‘The club wishes to thank the panel members for their diligence and the due process that they administered.’
