UEFA's Appeals Body consists of a chairman and eleven members.

The Appeals Body has jurisdiction to hear appeals against decisions of the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body pursuant to the disciplinary regulations in force at a given time.


The chairman of the Appeals Body or one of its members acting as ad hoc chairman, may take a decision as a judge sitting alone under clear factual and legal circumstances, in urgent cases, if the requests of the parties are identical or in the case of clearly inadmissible appeals, or in cases where the sanction imposed by the Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body is a fine of up to €35,000 or a suspension from playing or carrying out a function for up to three matches.
