Fenerbahçe was given a two-year ban while Besiktas was handed a one-year suspension due to the two teams’ match-fixing convictions, UEFA had ruled earlier this week.
The two teams then made an application to the CAS, which confirmed on July 17 that it had “registered an appeal filed by Fenerbahce SK and a request for provisional measures filed by Besiktas against UEFA, in relation to the decisions taken by the UEFA Appeals Body on July 10 and 11, 2013.”
The CAS also accepted Fenerbahce and Beşiktaş’s requests for a stay of execution.
Fenerbahçe announced that it would participate in tonight’s Champions League qualifiers draw. Besiktas will also participate in the Europa League qualifiers draw.
