Leicester will not lose points for breaking Premier League financial rules

Points will not be deducted from Leicester this season, the English Football League, the organization responsible for the English championships from the 2nd to the 4th division, confirmed this Friday. This decision comes after the English club initiated legal proceedings against the Premier League and the EFL.

“After obtaining legal advice, the EFL has confirmed that whilst it wishes to respect any decision by a Premier League disciplinary committee (and vice versa) to deduct points from the EFL, the EFL does not have that power under the regulations,” you can read in the official EFL statement.

It should be remembered that the organization accused Leicester, the club owned by Ricardo Pereira, Fatawu and Wanya Marçal, of breaking the Premier League’s financial sustainability rules, between 2014 and 2023. The EFL referred the English club to an independent commission for the Premier League and wanted impose a points deduction during the current season, something that was rejected due to the fact that the club had been relegated to the second division.

“Any accusations against the club must be determined appropriately and proportionately, in accordance with the applicable rules, by the right bodies and at the right time,” said Leicester.

The Foxes are in first place in the Championship, English second division, with 88 points, and this Friday they visit Plymouth Argyle, at 8pm.
