Hearing date set for 115 Premier League charges against Manchester City




Over 15 months have passed since Manchester City were hit with a staggering 115 charges of breaching Premier League financial fair play regulations.

An independent commission is expected to hear the case “in the next few months,” casting a long shadow over the club’s recent success.

The charges, stemming from a four-year investigation, allege that City began manipulating finances as early as the 2009/10 season. I


f proven guilty, it suggests City gained an unfair advantage in the transfer market, potentially signing players they wouldn’t have been able to afford under the league’s rules. This alleged deception taints all the club has achieved in recent years.

The situation has become increasingly urgent as other Premier League clubs like Everton and Nottingham Forest have already faced punishment for similar financial irregularities.

Sky Sports journalist Rob Harris reports that the Premier League “has indicated that a hearing is coming in the next few months.”


Manchester City, however, maintain their innocence. The club claims to possess “irrefutable evidence” to prove their case, which seems contradictory considering 68 of the charges relate to a failure to provide accurate financial information.

The potential consequences for City are severe. Point deductions, stripping of titles, and even relegation have all been discussed as possible punishments by the independent commission.

This body holds ultimate authority, unlike in 2020 when City successfully appealed a UEFA ban at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). This time, there’s no recourse to CAS – only an internal appeal process that could further delay a resolution.


As City chase a historic fourth consecutive Premier League title, the unresolved case casts a dark cloud. The potential for a lengthy appeal process only adds to the uncertainty surrounding the club’s future.

The 115 charges continue to hang over City, reminding everyone that their recent triumphs may have been built on an unstable foundation.
