Luis Suarez will discover the outcome of his
appeal against a four-month ban for biting at
14:00 BST on Thursday.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) verdict will
be released on Thursday, with the detailed reasons
for the decision published at a later date.
Suarez's legal team argued his ban from all
"football-related activity" for biting Italy's Giorgio
Chiellini at the World Cup was excessive.
The Uruguay striker, 27, was also suspended for
nine international games.
Suarez was a Liverpool player at the time of his
clash with Chiellini but has since left Anfield to join
Barcelona in a £75m deal.
BBC chief sports correspondent Dan Roan on
Suarez
"Don't be too surprised later today if Cas reduces
the punishment handed to Luis Suarez.
Effectively, Suarez, Barcelona and the Uruguay
FA have argued that Fifa's extension of the ban
to apply to domestic matches was
disproportionate. Fifa can apply such bans to
club football, but its own rules suggest this is for
exceptional off-field offences concerning the
integrity of the game, like doping or match-
fixing."
At last week's hearing in Lausanne, Suarez's legal
team was expected to argue that he should be
allowed to train with Barca during his suspension
and that his ban should be limited to international
football.
John Mehrzad, of the Law in Sport group, feels
such an approach offers the best chance of
success.
"In a nutshell, Suarez's best two grounds of appeal
are: Fifa did not have the power to ban him from
domestic club games; and/or a ban from "all
football-related activity" for four months - or at all
- is disproportionate."
Ahead of the hearing, Suarez's legal team were
confident they could argue to have the ban halved,
meaning he would be available to play from 25
August.

The ban handed down from world governing body
Fifa was the longest in World Cup history.
Suarez apologised afterwards, despite initially
claiming to have lost his balance.
He has previously been suspended for biting PSV
Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal and Chelsea
defender Branislav Ivanovic.
He was also given an eight-match suspension and
fined £40,000 for racially abusing Manchester
United's Patrice Evra in
