REUTERS - An appeal by former Fifa president Sepp Blatter against a six-year ban from all soccer-related activities for ethics violations will be heard at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on August 25, CAS said on its website on Friday.

Blatter had his bans for ethics violations upheld in February, though his initial ban of eight years was reduced to six.
