Russian footballers Aleksandr Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev are all set to get early release from prison.
The group were jailed after being found guilty of hooliganism for assaulting a trade ministry official and beating up a driver in October 2018.
Kokorin was sentenced to 18 weeks and Mamaev to 17 months in custody.
A courtroom in Russia’s Belgorod has now ruled they are qualified for release after a successful appeal.
The penalty for hooliganism is a maximum penalty of seven years in prison the players will soon be freed later this month, attorney Yuri Padalko told Russian news agency TASS.
Mamaev played Krasnodar while Kokorin, 28, was a forward at Zenit St Petersburg; Padalko confirmed they would return to playing soccer.
Kokorin has been capped by his nation 48 times – that he overlooked the 2018 World Cup – while Mamaev has 15 caps.
