The much awaitet verdict of the Indian Super League Appeals Panel on the appeal by the organising Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL) and franchise FC Goa against the tough sanctions and fines imposed of FC Goa will be only made public next week.
The Indian Super League in an official statement said the following
Honourable former Chief Justice of Bombay High Court Mr Kshitij Vyas, acting as the independent jury member of the ISL Appeals Panel will pronounce the decision on the appeals made by FSDL & FC Goa next week.
FSDL had appealed the decision of the ISL Disciplinary Commission to dock FC Goa’s 15 points for the 2016 season of Hero ISL. FSDL in its appeal had represented that the larger interest of the fans of FC Goa and the level playing field for all teams will be affected because of this and had requested the Appeals commission for a lenient view on the docking of points.
FC Goa, on their part, had also appealed to the Appeals commissioner on the ban on their co-owners, the financial penalty in addition to the docking of points.
