Manchester City Banned From Champions League For Two Years 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Feb 14, 2020 6:56 pm

Manchester City received a two-year ban from the Champions League after breaking financial fair play rules.

UEFA also fined the club $32 million.

City were found to have falsely inflated their sponsorship revenues. The investigation was sparked by a \"leaked\" email by the German magazine Der Spiegel in November 2018.

The emails showed that City ownership were mostly funding the club\'s $88 million Etihad sponsorship.

City said they would appeal UEFA\'s ruling.
