Chiefs trans­fer ban

Kick Off - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

The Kaizer Chiefs ban ap­peal date at the Court of Ar­bi­tra­tion for Sport is set for Septem­ber, so the team will serve the ban un­til a de­ci­sion is made in Septem­ber. What hap­pens when Fosa Ju­niors lose the case and they ap­peal also? If Chiefs are cleared of any wrong­do­ing and they lost a trans­fer win­dow to strengthen their team, will they be al­lowed to sign play­ers, or they will have to wait for next trans­fer win­dow?

Ed’s re­ply: As things stand, Kaizer Chiefs are banned from sign­ing play­ers and if they win the ap­peal, they can only sign play­ers from the next trans­fer win­dow in Jan­uary 2021.

It is very strange that Kaizer Chiefs is ex­pected to start serv­ing the ban from FIFA while there is an ap­peal lodged. The ap­peal is sup­posed to sus­pend the ban un­til fi­nal­iza­tion of the mat­ter, which would mean that Chiefs will be able to sign play­ers while wait­ing for the ap­peal to be fi­nal­ized.
