    EFL statement on Sheffield Wednesday

    An independent Disciplinary Commission, appointed under EFL Regulations, has ruled that Sheffield Wednesday will receive a 12 point deduction for breaching the League’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules for the three season reporting period ending with Season 2017/18.

    The sporting sanction will take effect in season 2020/21.

    The Club was charged in November 2019 and referred to an independent Disciplinary Commission, which conducted a full hearing at the end of June 2020, before finding the Club guilty based on the fact that the Club should not have included profits from the sale of Hillsborough Stadium in the Club’s financial statements for the period ending July 2018.

    The Club was found not guilty of a further charge of breaching its duty of utmost good faith to the EFL by deliberately concealing information from the League in respect of filings made in respect of the Profitability and Sustainability Rules.

    The Cheaters are not just Wednesday. The EFL are complicit. They can not punish a club THREE WHOLE YEARS AFTER ....
    MY GOD..As if we didn’t know it, the rulers of football in this country are CORRUPT.
    Wigan will be deducted 12 points, starting in 2023.
    And this for a THREE SEASON PERIOD.
    JOKE

    Got away with it again!
    Still say should be auto relegation and points deduction from following season. That way no escape.
    Maybe think twice before trying to pull a fast one.
    Wigan will be next.

    Dun't forget this was decided by an Independent Committee.

    Difficult to be certain what decisions such bodies come up with.
