The local media picked up the story of the Court of Arbitration for Sport's (CAS) ruling that PPCFC should be allowed to participate in the 2017 edition of the AFC Cup, by upholding our appeal against the decision of the AFC to refuse us admission, despite the club being the Cambodian champions. We will now join the competition at the Playoff Stage, likely to be held in February next year.
CAS provides international sport with an independent authority specialising in sports-related disputes and is seen as the last possible decision maker on a variety of sporting issues. Their headquarters, where our case was heard, is in Switzerland. Here are some of the media articles:
