LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- Turkish club Bursaspor have been excluded from the Europa League next season after failing in their appeal against a one-year ban from UEFA for breaking the governing body's financial fair play rules.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport announced the decision on Thursday.
In 2012, Bursaspor were fined and given a one-year ban from UEFA club competition -- deferred for a three-year probationary period -- for breaching FFP.
The club played in the Europa League last season, but were found last December to have breached FFP again.
Bursaspor filed an appeal with CAS, pushing for the sanction to be set aside or made less severe. Sport's highest court rejected the appeal.
