    Al Ain cleared to play in AFC Champions League

    Al Ain have won their appeal after being denied a licence to compete in Asia and can now play in next year’s Asian Champions League, it was announced on Tuesday.

    Last month, the Pro League Committee’s (PLC) First Instance Body rejected licence applications from Al Ain, Shabab Al Ahli, Bani Yas, Dibba, Kalba and Hatta.

    Al Ain were the most affected by the decision because it meant they would have been ruled out of next year’s Asian Champions League, missing the tournament for the first time in five years.

    However, the decision got reversed on appeal, and the 2003 Asian champions, who finished runners-up in 2005 and 2016, can now feature in next year’s tournament.
    Edgar repped this.
