A decision on Genoa's appeal at being denied a UEFA licence by the Italian Football Federation will be delayed.

Genoa will have to wait to discover the outcome of their appeal against being rejected a UEFA licence after the club's lawyer failed to appear at the hearing.

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) announced the club would not be awarded a licence to represent Serie A in continental competition on May 20, handing 13 other sides the privilege. 

Genoa – who will finish at least sixth in the league – appealed the decision in an attempt to earn themselves a reprieve and a place in the UEFA Europa League.
