Uefa resmi internet sitesinden yaptığı duyuru ile Fenerbahçe'yi UEFA Şampiyonlar Liginden men ettiğini yerine Trabzonspor'un doğrudan katılacağına hükmetti.
The UEFA Emergency Panel, composed of the UEFA President and four members of the UEFA Executive Committee, met today following the decision of the Turkish Football Federation to withdraw Fenerbahçe SK from the UEFA Champions League 2011/12 due to the fact that the club has been involved in match-fixing.
The UEFA Emergency Panel decided to replace Fenerbahçe SK with Trabzonspor AŞ, runners-up in the 2010/11 Turkish league, in tomorrow's draw for the UEFA Champions League group stage.
The UEFA Emergency Panel also decided that Trabzonspor AŞ would be replaced in the UEFA Europa League by its opponent in the play-off, Athletic Club Bilbao.
The UEFA Europa League play-off second-leg match between Trabzonspor AŞ and Athletic Club Bilbao scheduled for Thursday 25 August is cancelled.
Commenting on the UEFA Emergency Panel decision, UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino said:
"The panel considered that the Turkish Football Federation took the right decision to protect the game, fully in line with our zero-tolerance policy against match-fixing.
"The Turkish Football Federation has shown with this decision that it takes its full responsibility in the fight against corruption."
Böylelikle yarın Türk Telekom Arena'da oynanması planlanan Trabzonspor-Atletico Bilbao mücadelesi iptal edildi.
Trabzonspor'a Şampiyonlar Liginde başarılar dileriz.
