Real Mallorca continue fight against Europa League ban

Real Mallorca have appealed to the Spanish court against the postponement of a decision on their battle to be reinstated into the Europa League.

It seemed as if the Primera Division outfit had lost their bid when they were informed that a judgement on their appeal against UEFA's decision would not be made until September, with the Europa League play-offs due to take place on August 19 and 26.

Villarreal have taken Mallorca's place in the competition but the islanders are not prepared to conceded defeat, and have now turned back to the court.

UEFA announced last month they had denied the Spanish side entry to the upcoming season's competition after deeming that they had fallen foul of financial regulations relating to their debts, and later rejected Mallorca's appeal.

Mallorca took the matter to a Spanish court but have were told on Wednesday that "as they are not urgent proceedings" the islanders will have to wait until September 1 for a decision.

In a statement on the club website Mallorca insisted that "the proceedings do have urgency given the proximity of the playoff round".
