LAUSANNE, Switzerland – Paris Saint-Germain won an initial legal battle with UEFA to monitor its spending on player transfers and salaries.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport claims to have accepted PSG's appeal against an attempt by UEFA investigators to reopen a previously closed investigation.
The ruling in favor of PSG is separate from another UEFA investigation into its finances in the 2017-18 season when Qatar-owned French champions signed Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
The appeal proceedings related to the UEFA club finance monitoring panel that wants to examine a decision that declared PSG's accounts until June 2017 in accordance with the rules of "Financial Fair Play".
The court says that UEFA missed the deadline to challenge the previous decision.
