English FA has taken FIFA to court over Chelsea’s transfer ban last year

The Football Association (FA) has taken FIFA to court over Chelsea's transfer ban, which was imposed last summer, with the case set to be heard next month.

After seeing Chelsea successfully reduce their ban set by FIFA from two transfer windows to one, the FA will continue its legal battle with a June 26 date set for the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to hear its case.

Chelsea and the FA were both sanctioned by FIFA for breaches relating to the international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18. CAS ruled in favour of the Blues in December having already served their transfer ban over the summer of 2019.
