Uefa: Jersey FA made to wait
THE Court of Arbitration for Sport look set to keep the Jersey FA waiting until the end of September before publishing a judgement on their Uefa membership appeal.
The Swiss courts [CAS] had given indication that their findings would be released tomorrow, but JFA president Phil Austin received a letter just this week informing them of a three-week delay. No explanation was given.
Appeal hearings are followed by a three-month period of consideration by CAS arbitrators, although decisions are often made public well within that time frame. Jersey went head to head with Uefa in Lausanne on 28 June as they attempt to have their application discussed by all 55 existing member nations.
Uefa’s executive committee binned the application – first submitted in December 2015 – without formal consideration, on the grounds of independency.
