Premier League accuses Manchester City of alleged breaches of financial rules | Manchester City
Manchester City have been charged and referred to an independent commission by the Premier League for alleged breaches of their financial rules.
The alleged infractions span a period from the 2009-10 season to the 2017-18 campaign. The club allegedly breached league rules requiring the provision “in good faith” of “accurate financial information giving a true and fair view of the club’s financial position”.
A Premier League statement said: “In accordance with rule W.82.1, the Premier League confirms that it has today referred a number of alleged breaches of Premier League rules by Manchester City Football Club to commission under Premier League rule W.3.4.”
In 2020, City had a two-year ban from European club competitions overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas). UEFA previously ruled the club committed “serious breaches” of Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations between 2012 and 2016.
Manchester City are yet to respond to the statement at the time of writing.
