Turkish side, Galatasaray have been banned from all UEFA competitions for one season, after failing to comply with the financial fair play regulations.
The ban will be enforced the first time Galatasaray qualifies for either the UCL or the UEL within the next two seasons.
The ban will however be waived, if the Istanbul club fails to qualify within the next two seasons.
A statement from The Adjudicatory Chamber of the Uefa Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) read: “Galatasaray will be excluded from participating in the next Uefa club competition for which they would otherwise qualify in the next two (2) seasons (i.e. the 2016/17 and 2017/18 seasons).
“This decision was taken after Galatasaray failed to comply with the terms of the settlement agreement that it entered with the CFCB Chief Investigator in May 2014 under Article 15 of the Procedural rules governing the Uefa CFCB.
“The Turkish club has also been ordered to limit the overall aggregate cost of the employee benefits expenses of all of its players in each of the next two reporting periods (i.e. the reporting period ending in 2016 and the reporting period ending in 2017).”
