AC Milan TicketsAC Milan have been banned from participating in the UEFA Europa League 2019-2020 for breaching financial fair play regulations.   Here is the situation.  AC Milan reached a voluntary agreement with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Good news is for AS Roma, who finished in the sixth-position will take their automatic spot in the Europa League Group Stage while Torino, who finished in the seventh-position, will now take part in the qualifying rounds.  The question is for AC Milan Club on when will it be the much needed revival for Milan to be a main contender in Europe.

Here is AC Milan Official press release regarding the Voluntary Agreement with the CAS, as appeared in the Club official website.

“The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has issued a consent award ratifying AC Milan’s (the “Club”) voluntary acceptance of a one year exclusion from UEFA Club competitions, in settlement of breaches of the UEFA Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations in the three-year periods 2014-2017 and 2015-2018.

The current shareholder took ownership of the Club in July 2018, inheriting substantial accumulated losses after the previous owner of AC Milan defaulted on debt obligations. These losses and the associated violation of FFP rules, as a consequence of actions taken under previous ownership, led to sanctions by UEFA. Whilst saddened by the fact that our fans will not be able to see their team compete in European competition next season, the Club recognises and respects FFP. The Club acknowledges it has no other choice but to accept the sanctions, as it seeks to forge a pathway back to full compliance.

AC Milan remains committed to restoring the Club to its rightful place at the top of European football. Today’s ruling will act as a stimulus to maximize the efforts to become fully compliant with FFP, while at the same time consolidating the competitiveness of the Club, and returning AC Milan to sustainability and a more positive future.”

A sour day for Italy.   Inter lost the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 Second Leg game against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday 14 March 2019 at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium in Milan, Italy.   The first leg ended 0 – 0.  The second leg ending Inter 0 – 1 Eintracht giving the aggregate result in favor of Eintracht Frankfurt qualifying to the Europa League Quarterfinals.   It’s a major blow for Inter being out of the European competition.

The cold shower at the Meazza Stadium happened in the 5th minute.   Yep, the early goal by  Eintracht Frankfurt Luka Jovic defeating Inter goalkeeper with a right footed shot in the top left corner.  A blow!   It seemed that early goal affected Inter’s performance because they were unable to react making this defeat more painful.
