The proceedings concerned an appeal filed by the Albanian football club KS Skënderbeu against a decision issued by UEFA.

Due to various match-fixing activities, UEFA excluded the club from participating in UEFA competitions for the next ten years and ordered the club to pay a fine in the amount of EUR 1 million.

On 12 July 2019, CAS dismissed the appeal and confirmed the decision of UEFA.

Bär & Karrer assisted UEFA in these proceedings. The team was composed by Saverio Lembo, Lukas Stocker and Mirjam Trunz (all sports arbitration).
