Galatasaray, UEFA to discuss FFP agreement

Galatasaray and UEFA to review ffp agreement

The Lions continue to be of interest for UEFA despite their agreement this past summer.

Galatasaray president Mustafa Cengiz will meet with UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin this week to discuss the reviewed settlement agreement with the Super Lig champions over their financial situation.

The meeting will take place in the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

Last Friday, Galatasaray’s case was referred back to the Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) Investigatory Chamber.

“[The CFCB Adjudicatory Chamber] …announced today its decision to refer the case back to the CFCB Investigatory Chamber for further investigation. Meanwhile, the settlement agreement concluded on 13 June, 2018 remains in force, until further notice,” UEFA said in a statement last week.

On June 13, UEFA and Galatasaray reached a four-year settlement agreement which covers the seasons 2018/19, 2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22 as the club was not in compliance with the break-even requirement.

According to the agreement, Galatasaray would limit the number of players, pay a fine to UEFA and reduce their spending to reach full break-even compliance.

Galatasaray had undertaken to reach full break-even compliance for the monitoring period 2021/22 and agreed to report a maximum break-even deficit as reported in their forecast for the financial year ending in 2018, €20 million in financial year ending in 2019, and €10 million for the financial year ending in 2020.

Galatasaray had also accepted that they would be subject to a limitation on the number of players that they may include on the list for the purposes of participation in UEFA competitions.
