IT BANS SIGNING PLAYERS IN THE TWO NEXT RECRUITMENT PERIODS

Atlético de Madrid will appeal FIFA’s sanction

Our club does not agree with the sanctioning ruling from the international football body and is studying the documentation received to lodge an appeal.

Club Atlético de Madrid has received today a ruling from FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee that sanctions us with the ban to hire national or foreign players during the next two whole recruitment periods and with a fine of 900,000 Swiss francs (approximately 820,000 euros). According to the communication from the international football body, the sanction was caused by the infringement of articles 5, 9, 19 and 19A and annexes 2 and 3 of the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players. 

Our club does not agree with the imposed sanctioning ruling and will examine all the documentation received to lodge an appeal against the sanction.
