Exclusive: CAS Comment On Chiefs FIFA Ban

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has provided a crucial update on the latest regarding Kaizer Chiefs’ appeal to have their FIFA ban overturned.

In an email responding to the Siya crew this week, a spokesperson of the international body confirmed that the panel of arbitrators were locked in discussions over the heads of arguments presented by Amakhosi, FIFA and Fosa Juniors FC earlier this month.

Chiefs were handed a two-window ban by the world football governing body for the manner in which they handled the transfer of one of their former players – Andriamirado ‘Dax’ Andrianarimanana – from Fosa in Madagascar.

In February, FIFA sanctioned Amakhosi from registering new players over the next two transfer windows and ordering them to pay Fosa nearly R700 000 in compensation.

Chiefs appealed the ban and the hearing was heard by CAS on September 9, but with no outcome delivered – and a spokesperson from the organisation told the Siya crew via email that it was unclear when a decision would be communicated.

“Thank you for your message and for your interest in the activities of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Please be advised that a hearing was held in the matter CAS 2020/A/6796 Andriamirado Aro Hasina Andrianarimanana & Kaizer Chiefs FC v. Fosa Juniors FC & FIFA on 9 September 2020,” the international body confirmed.

“The Panel of arbitrators in charge of the matter is now deliberating and preparing the Arbitral Award containing its decision. It is very difficult to predict exactly how long this process will take.”

Chiefs are eager to recruit new faces for next season and will hope to know the club’s fate before the transfer window slams shut on November 30.
