FIFA Transfer Ban Suspended

New, comments

FC Barcelona got some respite today.

Until the next time...
Until the next time...

Football's Premier body, announced today that FC Barcelona's appeal has been granted "suspensive effect".

In brief, this will allow the Catalans to make moves in the transfer window this summer. FIFA's appeal committee has said there would not be enough time to make a final decision on the Ban (and in turn, the appeal) handed to FC Barcelona before the summer window opens.

In light of this, thanks to Barca's appeal to suspend the ban until a judgement can be made was granted.

Keep in mind, this does NOT mean the ban won't be upheld at a later date just that until the due process has been followed, FC Barcelona will be allowed to buy players this upcoming window.
