Saint Helier, Jersey ( Agencies + DIPLOMAT.SO) – Jersey are to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport after their bid to join UEFA was turned down.

The Jersey Football Association were told that the island fails to meet the criteria for affiliation because Article 5 of the UEFA Statutes, relating to “independent states” under the United Nations, is “not satisfied”.

Representatives from UEFA visited the island, a crown dependency of Great Britain, in September to meet with Jersey football officials.

“This was the response we expected,” said JFA president Phil Austin. “From a footballing perspective we more than meet the criteria.

“In rejecting our application, the executive of UEFA have said that they’re not putting our application forward to the congress. We don’t think the executive have the authority to do that, we think it should go to congress.”

Jersey submitted a bid to leave the English FA and join UEFA in December 2015.
