BELGRADE, May 19. /TASS/. The Football Association of Serbia (FSS) has filed an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne against Kosovo’s admission to the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), Serbian news web portal Politika reported on Thursday.
Citing its unnamed sources, Politika reported that the appeal was submitted with the court in Switzerland on May 13 and the FSS hopes that CAS would rule that it was illegal for UEFA to admit Kosovo.
Kosovo Football Federation was admitted to the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) at the organization’s Congress on May 3.
The UEFA Congress approved the decision by a 28 majority vote, while 24 UEFA members, including the Russian Football Union, voted against. Two ballot papers were declared void.
The Republic of Kosovo is recognized partially. It is not a member of the United Nations. A total of 64 states, including Russia, China, India and Brazil do not recognize Kosovo.
At the December 2014 session of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Kosovo’s National Olympic Committee was unanimously granted the right to become a full-fledged member of the Olympic movement.
After that a number of sports federations (of track and field athletics, basketball, volleyball, cycling and chess) of the self-proclaimed Kosovo Republic received temporary or permanent membership of the respective international organizations.
