Turkish football team Fenerbahçe will be allowed to compete in this year’s Champions League, UEFA announced today.
 
Fener fans were overjoyed by UEFA's call to allow the team to compete.
 
The club had been going through a rough patch over the past year as a result of a match-fixing scandal that had already seen it banned from last year’s Champions League.

Over the weekend, Galatasaray and Trabzonspor, teams also involved in legal troubles over the nationwide match-fixing cases, were cleared to play in European competitions.

Beşiktaş, Bursaspor and Gaziantepspor, was all excluded from playing in European competitions for financial misdemeanors, although the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) lifted Bursa’s ban earlier today.

Trabzon is still waiting for the 2010/2011 cup they deserve. They played the CL instead of corrupt Fenerbache so they deserve the cup aswell. Fener should have been punished by UEFA for atleast 2 years not playing international and should have been banned back a league. There has never been a more obvious corrupt club than Fener. Atleast in Italy or greece they properly punish corruption, in Turkey corruption still stays....
