The disciplinary committee ruled that Ossama Assaidi was registered.

The Asian Football Confederation’s Appeal Committee has dismissed an appeal lodged by Al Hilal on October 26.

– AFC: Kyung-won winner sends Al Ahli through to final

– Asia Angle: Ahli’s rivals should get behind them

– UAE: Olaroiu hits out at lack of support for Ahli

The club appealed against the decision of the AFC Disciplinary Committee to reject a protest made after their second leg AFC Champions League semi-final match on October 20, 2015.

 
In the protest, the club alleged that Mr Ossama Assaidi, who participated in the match for Al Ahli, was not duly registered with the UAE Football Association in accordance with its transfer rules, a contravention of Article 26.1.2 of the ACL Regulations.

 
However, the AFC Disciplinary Committee ruled on October 26 that Mr Assaidi had been validly registered in accordance with the UAE Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players by the UAE Football Association. He was therefore deemed eligible to participate in the match.

The decision has been notified to all affected parties who can appeal the decision within 21 days to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
