NEW DELHI, July 14: Former Chief Justice of Bombay High Court, Kshitij Vyas, will pronounce his verdict next week on FSDL and FC Goa�s appeal against sanctions imposed on them by ISL�s Regulatory Commission for boycotting the prize distribution ceremony following last edition�s final.
Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL) is a joint venture between IMG-Reliance and Star India.
�Honourable former Chief Justice of Bombay High Court Mr Kshitij Vyas, acting as the independent jury member of the ISL Appeals Panel will pronounce the decision on the appeals made by FSDL and FC Goa next week,� the Indian Super League said in a statement.
It added, �FSDL had appealed the decision of the ISL Disciplinary Commission to dock FC Goa 15 points for the 2016 season of Hero ISL. FSDL in its appeal had represented that the larger interest of the fans of FC Goa and the level playing field for all teams will be affected because of this and had requested the Appeals commission for a lenient view on the docking of points.�
FC Goa had filed their appeal before the ISL Appeals Panel comprising Vyas in May.
�FC Goa, on their part, had appealed to the Appeals commissioner on the ban on their co-owners, the financial penalty in addition to the docking of points,� the ISL said in the statement.
The ISL Regulatory Commission slapped the Goan franchise with a Rs 11 crore fine, docked 15 points and banned co-owners Dattaraj Salgaocar and Shrinivas Dempo for three and two years respectively for boycotting the ISL final prize distribution ceremony and �bringing the league into disrepute�. � PTI
