The European Football Association (UEFA) announced on Friday that the French club Olympique de Marseille has been fined three million euros for violating the laws of fair financial play, a decision that will not affect the club’s participation in the Champions League next season.

In addition to the fine, the Arbitration Committee of the Financial Supervision Committee decided to deduct 15 percent of the profits that the club will achieve for participating in the European competitions for the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 season if it qualifies and to allow a maximum registration of 23 players in the team that may participate in continental competitions until Season 2022-2023.

This decision will not affect what was feared by the fans of the club, which is his exclusion from competing in the Champions League after he finished second in the league standings this season after the League’s decision to cancel it due to the new Coronavirus and the coronation of Paris Saint Germain as a hero.

The club suffered a financial defect in its accounts in the 2018-2019 season, which caught the attention of the continental authority.
