FIFPro is calling for CSKA-Sofia to be suspended from European football until it pays overdue wages totaling more than 1 million euros to seven players.

The record 31-time Bulgarian champion has not complied with arbitration rulings dating back to 2015 that it must meet contract obligations to the footballers.

FIFPro has written to UEFA, requesting that it suspend CSKA should the club qualify for any of its European competitions next season.

The club is second in the Bulgarian league and on course to enter UEFA Europa League qualifying.

The rulings on the cases of the following seven players were made at the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber (FIFA DRC) or the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS):

Civard Sprockel (The Netherlands/FIFA DRC decision, 19 February 2015)

Guido di Vanni (Argentina/FIFA DRC decision, 2 September 2015)

Stephen Obayan Sunday (Spain/FIFA DRC decision, 17 December 2015)

David Bernardo Tengarrinha (Portugal/CAS decision, 8 September 2015)

Nilson Antonio da Veiga Barros (Portugal/CAS decisión, 8 September 2015)

Sergio Filipe Dias Ribeiro (Portugal/FIFA DRC decisión, 25 September 2015)

Youness Bengelloun (France/FIFA DRC decision, 21 May 2015)
