Everton win point-deduction appeal and move up in the Premier League standings


Everton has won the 10 points deduction appeal according to recent reports and has now moved up in the premier league table standings.

Following what many have categorised as a successful point-deduction appeal, English side Everton has now received a lesser point deduction of 6 instead of the 10 received in November 2023. The reduction will see Everton move from 17th to 15th in the Premier League standings.

This was confirmed in an official statement by the club which 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."

The statement went on to add, "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. "
