Manchester City will find out whether their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has been successful on July 13th, according to the Daily Mail.
It had been confirmed that an announcement was due in the first half of this month, but a firm date has now been set for the judgement to be released.
The Mail claims that the original plan was to deliver the verdict on July 10th but UEFA asked for a delay due to the Champions League draw for the quarter-finals being held on that date.
City were originally banned for two-years from European competitions by the governing body back in February, and fined €30m, after breaches of Financial Fairplay rules.
However, the Citizens are confident that an appeal to CAS will be successful after Paris Saint-Germain had a similar ban overturned by the Swiss court.
If, however, the original decision is upheld, it would mean that fifth place in the Premier League would be enough for Champions League qualification next season.
