Par­ti­zan’s Euro­pean ban lifted

New Straits Times - - Sport -

LAU­SANNE: Par­ti­zan Bel­grade’s Euro­pean ban over un­paid debts was lifted by the Court of Ar­bi­tra­tion for Sport (CAS) yes­ter­day af­ter the Ser­bian club pro­vided ev­i­dence that they had cleared over­due pay­ments to var­i­ous par­ties.

UEFA said in Jan­uary that Par­ti­zan had out­stand­ing debts with other clubs, em­ploy­ees, and lo­cal so­cial se­cu­rity and tax author­i­ties, which is in breach of Euro­pean club com­pe­ti­tion li­cens­ing reg­u­la­tions.

Par­ti­zan gave ev­i­dence to clar­ify their po­si­tion with the tax author­i­ties and that they had made a “timely pay­ment” of their debt with the other par­ties in­volved.

“Tak­ing into ac­count the fact that FK Par­ti­zan has sat­is­fied this con­di­tion, the club will be el­i­gi­ble to com­pete in fu­ture UEFA club com­pe­ti­tions,” CAS said in a state­ment. Reuters
