Uefa congress rejects application to become international football nation

Ungelesener Beitragvon Porsrun » Di Feb 27, 2018 3:25 am


Jersey's bid to become an international football nation has been rejected by Uefa's annual congress. Some sbobet777 49 nations decided not to back the Channel Island's bid to become Uefa's 56th member nation. Uefa initially denied Jersey the chance to put forward a case, citing that the island is not a sovereign country as defined by the United Nations. But the island appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas), who ruled that Uefa must sbobet777 hear Jersey's case. Their case was always a long shot, with Cas stating that it did not believe the application met Uefa's membership criteria, while the English Football Association refused to back the island's bid late last year. "Jersey cannot be considered as an independent state, the Jersey FA does not satisfy the sbobet777 admission criteria," Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin said. "We are ready to modernise and ready to change football, but we are not above our own statutes. "This is a big change and big difference. "It would not be in line with our statutes for the Jersey FA to be admitted as a member of Uefa."
