CAS confirm Atletico appeal over stadium ban

LAUSANNE, November 4 (CAS) - The Court of Arbitration for Sport have confirmed Atletico Madrid have filed an appeal against the stadium ban imposed on them by UEFA.

The Spanish side were initially given a three-match stadium ban, with one deferred, and told to play at least 300 kilometres away from Madrid for incidents during their Champions League clash with Marseille at the Vicente Calderon on October 1.

European football's governing body announced on Friday evening that the punishment had been reduced to a two-match behind-closed-doors sentence, with one match deferred for two years.

That still means Atletico's next home match in Europe, against PSV Eindhoven on November 26, will be played without spectators while the fine of 150,000 euros still stands, as does the two-match touchline ban against coach Javier Aguirre.

Atletico immediately vowed to contest Friday's ruling, and CAS confirmed on Tuesday they have received the club's latest appeal.

A CAS statement read: "The Spanish club requests the annulment of the sporting sanction (two matches behind closed doors) and of the financial sanction (fine of 150,000 euros) and also requests that the sporting sanction be stayed, considering, in particular, the proximity of the next Champions League match in Madrid on 26 November 2008 against PSV Eindhoven."
