Lausanne, 2 April 2015 - The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has issued its decision concerning the appeals procedure initiated by the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) against the Confederation of African Football (CAF) following the non-organization by the FRMF of the African Cup of Nations in January 2015. The CAS Panel has upheld the appeal in a large proportion. The sanctions imposed by the CAF on the FRMF have been set aside, with the exception of the fine, which is however reduced to USD 50’000. The disqualification of the Moroccan team from the CAN 2015 is final. The question related to the compensation of the possible damage caused by the FRMF to the CAF may still be examined by another jurisdiction.
