CAS sets date for FC Sion transfer ban appeal

CAS sets date for FC Sion transfer ban appeal

The Court of Arbitration for Sport has set a date for FC Sion's appeal against a one-year transfer ban imposed by FIFA.
CAS said Wednesday it will hear the Swiss club's case on Dec. 9. A verdict is expected several weeks later.
The case will be studied closely by English club Chelsea, which is also challenging a FIFA transfer ban for luring teenager Gael Kakuta from French club Lens.
FIFA ruled in June that Egypt goalkeeper Essam El Hadary broke his contract with Al-Ahly in January 2008 before joining Sion, and banned Sion from trading players until after the 2009-10 season. It also suspended El Hadary for four months.
At Sion's request, CAS froze the punishments until the arbitration panel delivers its verdict.
