Suarez appeals to CAS

Efe
Saturday, August 02, 2014

BARCELONA, Spain - The Court of Arbitration for Sport has summoned Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez, currently serving a four-month ban from all soccer-related activities, to a hearing in Switzerland on August 8.

Sources familiar with the case told Spanish news agency EFE that CAS will apply its fast-track procedure and should rule on Suarez's appeal against his suspension in mid-August.

The 27-year-old star striker, who was signed by FC Barcelona from Liverpool after FIFA's Disciplinary Committee handed down the sanction, was suspended on June 26 for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini during a World Cup round-robin match in the northeastern Brazilian city of Natal.

As part of the ruling, Suarez was barred from Uruguay's next nine competitive matches, the first of which was a June 28 loss to Colombia in the World Cup knockout stage.
