UEFA’s Financial Fair Play case against AC Milan: Special considerations after the CAS press release

During the UEFA Europa League licensing process for the 2018/2019 season, the Investigatory Chamber of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body (‘CFCB’) opened proceedings against Italian football club AC Milan looking into, inter alia, potential violations of the break-even requirement further to the UEFA Financial Fair Play (‘FFP’) Regulations. Ultimately the Adjudicatory Chamber of the CFCB found that AC Milan did in fact violate the break-even rule, and after AC Milan appealed its decision to exclude the club from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify for the next two seasons, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (‘CAS’) partially upheld the appeal and sent the matter back to the CFCB for reconsideration. Although at the time of publication the conclusion of this case is yet to be confirmed, it can be assessed as part of a discussion of the issues with respect to FFP decisions and the procedures behind them, as Juan de Dios Crespo Pérez and Paolo Torchetti, of Ruiz-Huerta & Crespo Sport Lawyers, explain.
