Fenerbahçe, Beşiktaş to participate in Euro draws, despite UEFA ban

Fenerbahce and Besiktas will participate in today’s European competitions’ qualifiers’ draws, after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) issued a stay of execution on their bans from EUROPE .
The two Istanbul clubs announced that they would participate in the draws, despite the ban handed to them by European football’s governing body. 

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.
