On Tuesday, the sports arbitration court announced the courts hearing schedule for the next three months, with the hearing of Manchester Citys lawsuit against UEFA scheduled for June 8-10. The hearing of sports arbitration court is generally not open to the public, and due to travel restrictions in some countries caused by the new coronavirus epidemic, some of the hearings may be held by video conference.
City decided to appeal immediately after being punished by UEFA in February. However, affected by the epidemic, the sports arbitration court has not held a hearing before. There have been concerns that this could lead to a decision not to be made before the end of this seasons Premier League, leading to a decision not to be made on next seasons Champions League teams. But now the sports arbitration court has finally set the trial schedule, and the Premier League has been delayed until June, which means the appeal results may be announced before the end of the season.
Manchester City are currently second in the Premier League table. If the appeal is successful, Manchester City are expected to qualify for the Champions League next season. If the appeal fails and Manchester City remain in the top four of the Premier League, the fifth place in the Premier League this season will replace Manchester City in the Champions League next season, while Manchester United are currently ranked fifth in the Premier League.
