Last Thursday in Croissy-sur-Seine (Yvelines), it was with forceful jeers and slogans hostile to the president of the Tunisian Football Federation that a dozen Chebbian Sports Crescent supporters (CS Chebba) had hosted Wadii Jarii and the Carthage Eagles, opposed that day to the Comoros in a friendly preparation match for the World Cup.
A week later, at D-52 of the World Cup, these enthusiasts received the good news they had been waiting for weeks: the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)seized by the leaders of their core team, agreed with them and ordered the reinstatement of their team in Ligue 1 Tunisian. The management committee of the Chebbian club published the news on its official Facebook page.
The CAS ruled
As a reminder, CS Chebba had decided to seize the sports jurisdiction in order to appeal the decision of the appeal committee of the Tunisian Federation ofratify the result of the match between the African Club and CS Chebba (1-0), on April 13.
Interrupted by theirruption on the lawn of the club president, then suspended, the match did not result in a defeat on the green carpet as provided for in the regulations. If that had been the case, the complaining club would not have been relegated.
The CAS therefore considered that the arguments of the Chebbian party were well founded. A hell of a rock in Wadii Jarii’s shoe.
