ZURICH (Reuters) - The Court of Arbitration for Sport has reduced the ban on Real Madrid signing new players to one transfer window from two, the tribunal said on Tuesday.

Lausanne, Switzerland-based CAS also ordered Real Madrid to pay a fine to global soccer body FIFA of 240,000 Swiss francs ($233,120), reduced from 360,000 francs.

The suspensions were initially imposed by FIFA's disciplinary committee in January for breaching rules on signing non-Spanish under-18 players.

($1 = 1.0295 Swiss francs)
