Osasuna will play in next season’s Conference League. The Court of Arbitration for Sport has accepted the evidence provided by the La Liga club in its defense and UEFA has decided to lift its punishment.
“UEFA has concluded that Osasuna was a victim of the events that occurred almost a decade ago and has valued the initiative carried out by the institution to qualify them”, read a statement published by Osasuna on Tuesday morning.
On June 7, just three days after qualifying for the Conference League, Osasuna learned that UEFA had decided to expel them from the competition due to match-fixing in 2014.
The draw for the competition will take place on August 7.
