Serbia gets CAS date to challenge Kosovo's UEFA membership

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) The Serbian soccer federation has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport against Kosovo being accepted as a member of UEFA.

CAS says it will hear the case on Oct. 31.

In May, UEFA member federations voted 28-24 in favor of Kosovo's application after Serbia led the opposition to its former province. The then-president of Serbia's federation, Tomislav Karadzic, said it was a "political vote, not a footballing proposal."
