On 28 August 2013 the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) dismissed the appeals lodged by both Fenerbahce SK and FC Metalist Kharkiv, respectively.  The appeals were filed in response to judgments made by UEFA that both clubs had been involved in match-fixing.

For Fenerbahce, the punishment will be immediate expulsion from the Europa League and they will be prevented from qualifying for the next instalment of the Champions League. The Ukrainian side, FC Metalist Kharkiv had been implicated in fixing national league competitions.

The decisions have been issued by CAS without detail due to the urgency of the matter.  The awards will be issued as soon as practicable.
