Austria Wien does not receive a Bundesliga license
The massive financial problems continue to cause Vienna Austria great concern. On Tuesday, Senate 5 of the Bundesliga refused the traditional club in the first instance the license for the coming season, as announced in a broadcast. All other eleven upper house clubs, however, received the game permit.
Austria can lodge a protest with the protest committee of the Bundesliga within eight days of the delivery of the decision – i.e. by next Wednesday. There is also the possibility of presenting new evidence of economic performance. The decision of the protest committee will be made by April 27th.
If the license or admission is refused by the protest committee, the applicant still has the option of filing a complaint with the permanent neutral court of arbitration. The arbitral tribunal is not a body of the Austrian Football League and decides – finally – instead of an ordinary court.
Austria President Frank Hensel stated in a broadcast by the association: “Thanks to the license decision we received today, we know exactly what requirements are placed on us and what we have to focus on. We will do everything we can to provide the additional information in a timely manner. “
