twe grolFC Twente have been under investigation from the KNVB after the leaking of contracts with investment company Doyen, which showed the club did not have control on certain player’s transfers.

The investigation has found that the Enschede club deliberately misled the licence commission and the verdict is that Twente will be banned from Europe for three years, fined over €45,000 and have their licence conditionally revoked.

A statement on the KNVB website announced that Twente’s licence will be revoked if the club do not “fully cooperate with an independent investigation into the current structure of the club.”

Twente have been tasked with finding out who is responsible for the contracts with Doyen and removing them from their role, as well as getting their structure back in order by the 1st of May 2016. If the License commission are not fully satisfied by then, Twente will have their licence taken from them.

The reason for the ban from European competitions is that an investigation learned that Twente had gained a UEFA Licence during the 2014/15 season wrongly, and participated in the Europa league. The license was obtained with inaccurate and incomplete information.
