UEFA investigators send Man City case to judges for verdict

NYON, Switzerland — UEFA says its club finance investigators have sent their Manchester City file to independent judges for a verdict.

The English champion faces a one-year ban from the Champions League, potentially next season.

The club finance panel opened its formal case against City in March "for potential breaches of Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations that were made public in various media outlets."

Internal documents about City's business and emails between club executives were published in the Football Leaks series led by German magazine Der Spiegel.

The revelations suggested City officials deceived UEFA over several years, including by disguising that revenue from potentially overvalued commercial deals came from the club's owners in Abu Dhabi.

The Associated Press reported this week that club officials have not fully cooperated with UEFA's investigators.

UEFA did not suggest a timetable for a verdict, which could eventually be appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
