FA To Appeal Chelsea Transfer Ban
The English Football Association says it will appeal a fine slammed on it by FIFA and a transfer ban imposed on Premier League club Chelsea.
Chelsea and the FA were on Friday sanctioned by Fifa's disciplinary committee for breaching regulations over the transfer of minors.
The Blues have been banned from registering players for two consecutive transfer windows for 29 incidences of breaching article 19, which relates to the transfer of players aged under 18.
The London club were also fined 600,000 Swiss francs (over £460,000), while the FA has been fined 510,000 Swiss francs (over £390,000) for breaching the rules in connection with minors.

However, Skysports quoted the FA as saying it has taken a swift decision to appeal the punishments.
The FA can take its contest before the FIFA Appeal Committee or CAS.
An appeal could mean the Blues conduct business this summer if the appeal is not heard before the opening of the window.
Chelsea will be able to sign players, but they will not be able to play until the start of the 2020/21 season.
