Football: CAS expels Turkish club Fenerbahce from Europa League for match-fixing
LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND (AP) - Fenerbahce have been expelled from the Europa League and barred from qualifying for next season's Champions League in a match-fixing case.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport said Wednesday it dismissed the Turkish club's appeal against a two-year competition ban imposed by Uefa.
"Pursuant to the Uefa decision, which is now confirmed by the CAS, Fenerbahce are excluded from two editions of the Uefa club competitions," the court said in a statement.
CAS also confirmed Metalist Kharkiv's expulsion from the Champions League in another years-old fixing case involving national league matches.
