Chelsea’s appeal against a transfer ban by FIFA is set for 20th of November. The hearing will take place at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. 

CAS announced the hearing date on Monday with a verdict due before the January transfer window.

The blues served the first half of their one-year ban-imposed in February. This happened on registering new players during the summer transfer window.

The club did not seek to freeze the FIFA sanction while preparing the appeal to CAS.

FIFA disciplinary and appeal committees have said Chelsea violated 150 rules that protect minors from trafficking in cases involving about 70 players.

Chelsea was also judged to have broken rules prohibition third-party influence on players. FIFA imposed a fine of £470,000.

The club has denied wrongdoings but was unsuccessful in overturning the decision when they presented their case to FIFA’s appeals committee in April.
