Newly crowned Turkish SÃ¼per Lig champions BeÅ??iktaÅ?? challenged European football body UEFA in the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Friday, in a case of unpaid debts that could cost the club millions of euros in prize money.
The sportâ????s highest court said the clubâ????s appeal hearing was being held Friday. No target date was set for a verdict.
UEFA judges ruled in March that BeÅ??iktaÅ?? broke « Financial Fair Playâ???? rules by having overdue payments. UEFA did not specify the type of debts owed which could relate to transfer fees, wages, or taxes.
BeÅ??iktaÅ?? faces being deducted 15% of its UEFA prize money from the Champions League next season for unpaid debts.
Turkeyâ????s champion typically earns at least 25-30 million euros ($30-36 million) for playing in the group stage.
BeÅ??iktaÅ?? appealed to CAS though UEFA also set a June 30 target for the club to show it had settled the debts which had been identified as unpaid by a deadline last September.
BeÅ??iktaÅ?? last month won its first Turkish league title since 2017 on goal difference after finishing tied on points with runner-up Galatasaray.
