'If It's Football, It's Vital'

FIFA: Arsenal Are Innocent

FIFA today issued a statment statement clearing Arsenal Football Club of any wrong doing concerning their reletionship with Belgian club, Beveren.

The FA had been ordered to conduct it's own investigations and last week found in favour of the North London club, the same sentiment has now been braodcast by FIFA with the following statement.

'After carefully analysing the documents and statements provided by the Football Association in relation to an alleged breach of club ownership rules by English club Arsenal FC and Belgian club VZW KSK Beveren, FIFA confirmed today there is no evidence or indication of any infringement of the relevant regulations.

'The FA had already reached the same conclusion, having been requested by FIFA to investigate the case. Under the FIFA statutes, it is the responsibility of the member associations to ensure neither a natural nor a legal person exercises control over more than one club whenever the integrity of any match or competition could be jeopardised.

'In view of these findings, FIFA does not see any reason for further investigation or for any additional measures to be taken in this connection.'


This now draws a line under the whole saga, which can be laid to rest.

Good news all round.
