Everton’s Premier League Deduction Reduced: Appeal Success Cuts Penalty To Six Points

Everton premier League deduction

After a successful appeal, Everton’s Premier League deduction has been trimmed from 10 points to six, stemming from a breach of the league’s Profit & Sustainability rules in November.

As a result, Everton has ascended to the 15th position in the Premier League standings, surpassing Brentford and Nottingham Forest, with four points restored.

An Everton club statement read:

“Everton can confirm an Appeal Board has concluded that the points deduction imposed by an independent Premier League Commission in November be reduced from 10 points to six points, with immediate effect.

“While the Club is still digesting the Appeal Board’s decision, we are satisfied our appeal has resulted in a reduction in the points sanction.

“We understand the Appeal Board considered the 10-point deduction originally imposed to be inappropriate when assessed against the available benchmarks of which the Club made the Commission aware,

including the position under the relevant EFL regulations, and the 9-point deduction that is imposed under the Premier League’s own rules in the event of insolvency.

“The Club is also particularly pleased with the Appeal Board’s decision to overturn the original Commission’s finding that the Club failed to act in utmost good faith.

That decision, along with reducing the points deduction, was an incredibly important point of principle for the Club on appeal.

The Club, therefore, feels vindicated in pursuing its appeal.

“Notwithstanding the Appeal Board’s decision, and the positive outcome,

the Club remains fully committed to cooperating with the Premier League in respect of the ongoing proceedings brought for the accounting period ending in June 2023.

“The Club is still considering the wider implications of the decision and will make no further comment at this time other than to place on record its thanks to our Fan Advisory Board and other fan groups throughout this process, and to all Evertonians for their ongoing support and patience.”

Everton exceeded the standard £105m losses over a three-year period, violating PSR regulations.

The club faces another charge for similar breaches during the 2022/23 period, along with Nottingham Forest.

The Premier League has released a comprehensive 61-page report detailing the appeal’s outcome.

Everton will approach their upcoming match against West Ham with full confidence, understanding that a victory will firmly secure their position on the Premier League table.
