Default Feyenoord launch Uefa ban appeal

Feyenoord launch Uefa ban appeal

Feyenoord have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland in an attempt to have their Uefa Cup ban overturned.

Spurs were scheduled to play Feyenoord in the last 32, but were given a bye into the last 16 after the Dutch club were punished for crowd trouble.

The incidents happened earlier this season against French side Nancy.

Feyenoord's financial director Onno Jacobs said: "We don't feel we should be punished this way."

Jacobs added: "We would like to have this ruling revised by a court, based on the facts we do not feel we should be punished.

"We have thought about cutting our losses but the predominant feeling is that the club has been wronged."

A spokesman for the CAS said a tribunal could suspend Uefa's punishment, allowing the game with Spurs to go ahead, or decide there were no grounds to delay the expulsion.

Hopefully we'll get some compensation but other people may think differently

The spokesman said: "If it's practical, we would aim to have a verdict before the game, which is due to take place on 14 February."

Pending the appeal, Spurs will go through to the next round where they will play either Braga or Parma.

A Uefa statement confirmed: "Tottenham have received a bye into the Uefa Cup round of 16 following the exclusion of Feyenoord."

Uefa's other option was to order Spurs to play Wisla Krakow, who finished behind Feyenoord in the group stage.

Spurs will lose revenue from gate receipts and television money, but will gain prize money for getting closer to this season's final in Glasgow.

Tottenham boss Martin Jol misses out on a trip to his homeland, but had earlier claimed Spurs should receive some compensation for the loss of income.

Jol said: "My chairman thinks that if we want to play in Europe we should play in Europe.

"He's right because it was a big tie against Feyenoord and hopefully we'll get some compensation but other people may think differently."
