FIFA Against Court Action

According to The Sunday Times England could be suspended from international competition and English clubs could be banned from international competition if the Wigan chairman continues with his ludicrous attempts to sue the Premier League or West Ham.

According to Article 62 of the FIFA statutes, "Recourse to ordinary courts of law is prohibited unless specifically provided for in the Fifa regulations. To ensure the foregoing, the associations shall insert a clause in their statutes stipulating their clubs and members are prohibited from taking a dispute to ordinary courts of law and are required to submit any disagreement to the jurisdiction of the association, the appropriate confederation or Fifa."
