The Court of Arbitration for Sport will hear Chelsea’s appeal against their two-window transfer ban on November 20.
FIFA imposed the sanction on the west London club in February due to the Blues breaking transfer regulations relating to minors.
The club were unsuccessful in overturning the decision when they presented their case to FIFA’s appeals committee in April and now CAS will rule on the issue.
As well as the two-window ban, Chelsea were fined 600,000 Swiss francs (which equated to £460,000 in February).
FIFA found the London club guilty of breaching article 19 of its regulations on the status and transfer of players (RSTP), which concerns the protection of minors.

They were also found to have breached article 18, concerning third-party influence.
Documents published by FIFA last week showed its appeals committee found Chelsea had committed 150 breaches of regulations.
The appeals committee agreed with the disciplinary committee that the breaches were ‘inexcusable’.
