UEFA statement following TFF meeting

UEFA has issued a statement following a meeting in Nyon with representatives of the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) concerning disciplinary matters.

For the avoidance of doubt and in view of certain misleading stories that have appeared in the Turkish news media, at a meeting in Nyon yesterday with representatives of the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) (which had been requested by the TFF), UEFA first of all emphasised that the UEFA disciplinary bodies are independent and, consequently, that it is not possible for the UEFA administration to predict what the outcome of the procedure(s) will be.

The UEFA disciplinary bodies will apply the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations and decide the case(s) accordingly. It is therefore not a question of the eventual UEFA decisions "affecting" (or not) any previous decisions taken by the disciplinary bodies of the TFF. In his report, the UEFA disciplinary inspector had taken note of the existence (and content) of the decisions taken by the disciplinary bodies of the TFF as well as of the different ongoing criminal proceedings.

In addition to the disciplinary procedure against Fenerbahçe SK, there is also one against Beşiktaş JK. UEFA is, of course, fully confident that the hearings before its disciplinary bodies will be fair and equitable, as they always are.
