Eight of the Premier League’s top ten clubs have joined forces to collectively launch an application to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to ensure Manchester City are unable to play in the Champions League while their appeal is ongoing.

The Manchester-based sides were banned from the Champions League for the next two seasons after they were found to have breached Financial Fair Play regulations.

The sanction against City also including €30m fine, after they were deemed to have misled UEFA.

However, City later lodged an appeal against their ban, while it was also revealed in February that the club could apply to have their two-year ban frozen while their appeal to CAS is being heard.

Most recently, it was explained that their ban ​could be suspended until as late as the 2021/22 season because CAS are struggling to find time to deal with their appeal.
