The Jersey FA finally has a date at the Court of Arbitration for Sport over its application to join UEFA.

Europe’s governing body rejected the island’s membership bid last year, but the JFA wants its approach to go before all of UEFA’s member nations.

It will be represented at CAS by a barrister and QC on Wednesday June 28 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

JFA president Phil Austin told ITV News he expects the panel of three judges will deliver a written decision within three months of the hearing.

Membership of UEFA would see Jersey take part in qualifying for the European Championship and island club sides enter Europe’s continental competitions, the Champions League and Europa League.
