Review and events[edit]

Season[edit]

Transfer controversy[edit]

History[edit]

The controversy started when FC Sion signed Essam El-Hadary in 2008.[1]

2011–12 Events[edit]

FC Sion originally drew 0-0 and won 3-1 against Celtic F.C. in the Europa League.[2][3] However, UEFA overturned the results and awarded Celtic F.C. 3-0 forfeit victories for both legs of the tie.[4] FC Sion lost their appeal to re-enter the competition.[5]

The Swiss Football Association deducted 36 points from FC Sion.[1] Three points were deducted for each of the 12 league and cup matches in which one or more of the six ineligible players appeared.[1] The 36 points deduction left FC Sion in last place and minus 5 points.[1] FIFA had threatened to suspend the Swiss Football Association if there was no action against FC Sion.[1] This meant that all national teams and clubs under the jurisdiction of the Swiss Football Association would not be allowed to participate in any FIFA and UEFA competition.[1]
