Everton’s 10-point deduction reduced down to six points

Everton successfully appealed their 10-point deduction in the Premier League, ending with a reduction to six points.

Initially penalized for breaching the Premier League’s Profit & Sustainability (PSR) rules in November, Everton have now gotten four points back.

In a statement, Everton confirmed that an Appeal Board decided to reduce the points deduction imposed by an independent Premier League Commission, from 10 points to six points, effective immediately.

Everton releases a statement about the return of four points

“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 went over the standard £105 million losses over three years, violating the PSR rules. Additionally, the club faces another charge for breaches of PSR from the 2022/23 period, along with Nottingham Forest.

The Premier League has released a 61-page report about the outcome of the appeal.
