The latest wave of Premier League sanctions were published by the league yesterday which saw two teams charged by the governing body.

Both Everton and Nottingham Forest were found in breach of the League’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR) with accounting ending on June 30th 2023.

A Premier League statement said, “In accordance with Premier League Rules, both cases have now been referred to the chair of the Judicial Panel, who will appoint separate Commissions to determine the appropriate sanction.

Commissions are independent of the Premier League and member clubs. The proceedings are heard in private with the Commissions’ final decisions made public on the Premier League’s website. The League will make no further comment until that time.”

Following on from the Premier League verdict, Premier League CEO Richard Masters has been speaking to the select committee in parliament about various issues. Masters was also asked to give an update on Chelsea’s case.

Masters told the Culture, Media & Sport committee, “On Chelsea, as you know Chelsea, the new owners of Chelsea came forward with information to the FA, UEFA and the Premier League about previous ownership and we’re still investigating that and we don’t announce the outcome of that until we have completed those investigations.”
