Yasin Patel Wins Appeal For Football Club at FA Appeal

At an FA Appeal Tribunal held at Wembley Stadium, Yasin Patel, representing a leading football club successfully overturned an FA decision to push a football club which would have resulted in their relegation from their current division.

The matter heard by the Panel involved the alleged breach of FA Rules on Ground Regulations and contractual duties of clubs.

The 3-man panel heard evidence from the Club and the FA as well as League representatives and following the full hearing, quashed the League ruling and overruled the decision thereby allowing the football club’s arguments.  The successful verdict means the club will not lose its leading players or suffer almost inevitable financial losses and losses of sponsorship if the original decision had been allowed to stand.
