After having analysed the case file and the statements submitted by both parties, the CEDB has decided, based on Articles 6, 7, 14(1) and 34(5) DR [in the spirit of UEFA’s Resolution entitled European Football united against racism] and taking into account Mr. Tavecchio’s decision to immediately refrain from participating in any UEFA’s activity pending the resolution of the matter, as follows: -        Mr. Tavecchio will be ineligible for any position as a UEFA Official for a period of six months starting from the communication of this decision; -       Mr. Tavecchio will not participate in the next UEFA Congress scheduled for 24 March 2015; -       Mr. Tavecchio will organise a special event in Italy aimed at increasing awareness and compliance with the principles of UEFA’s Resolution entitled European Football united against racism.

CAS dismisses Metalist request

UEFA notes with satisfaction that the Court of Arbitration for Sport has dismissed FC Metalist Kharkiv's second request for provisional measures following the club's ban.

UEFA notes with satisfaction that the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has today dismissed another request for provisional measures by FC Metalist Kharkiv.

The Ukrainian club were attempting to obtain a stay of execution of the decision of the UEFA Appeals Body dated 14 August 2013, according to which the club was disqualified from UEFA competitions owing to its involvement in match-fixing.  This follows an earlier ruling of CAS (issued on 16 August 2013) dismissing a previous request for a stay of execution.

Metalist have been replaced in the competition by PAOK FC, who are scheduled to play against FC Schalke 04 in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League play-off tie on 21 August.
