LEAGUE CONFIRM ARBITRATION PROCESS FOR WIMBLEDON DECISION

The Football League has confirmed that Wimbledon Football Club's application to move to Milton Keynes will be heard by a judicially appointed independent arbitration panel. Football League spokesman John Nagle said "Wimbledon have the right to appeal under FA regulations and the type of appeal they have chosen is arbitration.
