Mostafa Asal with immediate effect faces a six-week suspension from the PSA Tour as well as a £2,000 fine, as announced by PSA-Professional Squash Association. Accordingly, Asal stands withdrawn from the upcoming Optasia Championships and British Open.

Asal had filed an appeal which was heard by an independent Appeals Panel. After reviewing the evidence and hearing the respective parties’, the Appeals Panel confirmed imposing a six-week suspension, as well as upholding the original fine that was imposed by the PSA’s Disciplinary Committee. This means he will not be eligible to compete in the PSA Tour until 1st May 2023.
