Rayo frustrated in CAS appeal

Rayo Vallecano are set to miss out on this season’s Europa League after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) said it could not grant the club a UEFA licence.

Rayo finished eighth last season, which would have been enough to qualify for the tournament as a result of Malaga’s own exclusion from European competition, but the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) denied them a licence last May.

Rayo had appealed, but CAS has ruled that the decision is out of its jurisdiction.

The RFEF maintains Rayo cannot be granted a licence as they still have outstanding debts, but the Madrid-based side say they are unable to pay off their dues as a result of going into administration.

Rayo have vowed to “continue with the appeal” and “use all avenues within our jurisdiction”.
