Russian Cup winner FC Rostov regains Europa League place following CAS decision

  • Print

MOSCOW - Russian Cup winner FC Rostov has regained its place in next season's Europa League on appeal after earlier being barred from taking part due to unpaid debts.

The Russian Football Union last month blocked the club from taking its European place on the grounds that Rostov breached club licensing rules.

However, the Court of Arbitration for Sport has now overturned that ruling, Rostov says. In a team statement Monday, coach Miodrag Bozovic says "justice has triumphed" and that "this is a big opportunity for our team."

Rostov will now join the Europa League at the playoff stage, UEFA told The Associated Press.

Rostov's reinstatement means nine-time Russian champion Spartak Moscow loses its Europa League place, which it received when Rostov was excluded.
