Everton and Nottingham Forest set for breach of FFP rules, could face points deductions

Everton and Nottingham Forest set for breach of FFP rules, could face points deductions

Everton have already been given a 10-point deduction this season

Everton and Nottingham Forest are reportedly set to be found in breach of Premier League’s profitability and sustainability regulations.

Earlier on in the season, Everton were given a 10-point deduction over a breach of financial fair play rules.

The Goodison Park club swiftly confirmed that they will appeal the decision.

Now, it has been reported that Everton and Forest are expecting to be told whether they have breached the Premier League’s financial regulations on Monday.

According to The Athletic, both clubs are at risk of a fine or a points deduction with formal notice of any charges to be issued.

It has been claimed that both Everton and Forest have ‘prepared mitigation and are expected to robustly argue their case.’

Since Forest secured their return to the top flight back in May 2022, they have spent around £250 million on new players, leaving them at risk of a financial breach.

Meanwhile, Everton have been faced with financial problems under owner Farhad Moshiri plus their new £760 million stadium left them vulnerable.

After being hit with a 10-point deduction, Everton released a statement confirming their decision to appeal last month.

It read: “Everton Football Club has today lodged with the chair of the Premier League’s judicial panel its appeal of the decision by a Premier League commission to impose a 10-point deduction on the club. An appeal board will now be appointed to hear the case.”


Everton’s fan advisory board has also written to the league asking for fans’ views to be considered during the appeal process.

The letter read: “The Premier League rightly stated that ‘it is vital we ensure the voices of supporters are not only heard in the stands, but also when it comes to having a say on key issues relating to their clubs’.

“It is in this context that we would like to express our significant concerns that at no point during the process which led to (what is, in our opinion) the disproportionate penalty imposed on Everton Football Club or, in considering and making recommendations about the potential sanctions that should be applied to the breach, has the Premier League considered or taken into account the views of supporters.”
