Everton submits an appeal following the ten-point deduction


Everton Football Club have officially submitted its appeal to challenge the ten-point deduction for breaking the Premier League financial fair play rule.

The club confirmed in a statement which was released on the club's website that they had made their appeal with the Chair of the Premier League's Judicial Panel on Friday, which will now lead to the appointment of an Appeal Board to hear the case.

The Premier League had initially told Everton that they had until the close of work on Friday to submit an appeal. However, Everton runs the risk of suffering another points deduction if they are found to have breached spending rules in their next set of accounts, which are set to be submitted by December 31, 2023.

The financial year covers the 2022/23 football season and it has been confirmed under the regulations that financial breaches will be fast-tracked and dealt with before the season's close. This punishment has placed Everton in 19th place on the league table.
