AC Milan’s ban from the 2018-19 Europa League for breaching Financial Fair Play and licensing regulations has been overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

UEFA confirmed in late June they had taken drastic action against Milan’s apparent breaches of break-even requirements, barring them from competing in Europe’s second-tier competition for next season.

Milan, who qualified for the Europa League by virtue of finishing sixth in Serie A, immediately launched an appeal to CAS.

And their ban from the competition has, as a result, been annulled, although they could still end up with some form of punishment, with CAS telling UEFA to “issue a proportionate disciplinary measure”.
