The CAS have released full details into the Manchester City vs UEFA case earlier this year.

It seems we have a full and complete exoneration.

Initial takeaways seem to be:

Including perhaps most notably,

“The majority of the panel finds that Etihad sponsorship agreements are presumed to be negotiated at fair value and that MCFC, HHSM, ADUG and Etihad are considered not to be ‘related parties’.”

“There is no evidence that agreements were backdated or that MCFC otherwise retrospectively tried to cover up any alleged violations following the publication of the Leaked Emails.”

The conclusion says as much, that City were not found guilty.

That’s that right? CAS rules and we move on.

We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
