The details of Manchester City ’s stunning appeal victory might never be released by the Court of Arbitation for Sport (CAS). Per Manchester Evening News.

The “written reasons” for the elimination of the Blues’ two-year European ban were expected to be announced today.

But the Switzerland-based court has delayed publication of the details of the case until next week – and suggest that they may never see the light of day.

CAS have previously announced that the arbitral award will be published on their website next week, unless there is an objection from one or both parties in the dispute.

The award (what CAS call decision) could contain sensitive information about City which might cause them to ask for redactions on the papers.

Uefa might not want the proceedings to become public as they have been heavily criticised for what appears to be a botched attempt to include alleged breaches of the rules which were forbidden by their own time limits.

Only time will tell if the award is published as scheduled.

Thoughts on CAS award being delayed and possibly not released?
