Report reveals the anticipated date of the verdict regarding the 115 charges against Manchester City.
The Premier League charged Manchester City in February on suspicion of breaking 115 financial rules over a nine-year period from 2009 to 2018.
Nevertheless, since then, both fans and commentators have questioned why an official decision hasn’t been made.
Given that Everton was accused of violating financial regulations in March and that the Premier League penalised them with ten points for the infractions less than two weeks ago, pending an appeal, this topic is even more pertinent today.
When Manchester City’s decision about the 115 financial charges brought against them could be officially announced
The Daily Mail has stated that a hearing to resolve this matter between Manchester City and the Premier League is scheduled for late autumn of 2024.
The hearing will also be held in front of a panel of independent experts.
This won’t be a short process; according to the newspaper, experts with knowledge of the case anticipate a final decision might be made in the summer of 2025.
But in the event of any delays, it might take much longer for these procedures to proceed.
According to additional information, an appeal would probably be filed by Manchester City or the Premier League if they were not happy with the final decision over the alleged 115 financial violations.
Should this turn out to be the case, the entire procedure may wind up taking even longer.
If approved, City might file an appeal, but this time, the option of taking the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will not be considered. Naturally, after considering an appeal, CAS reversed City’s Champions League ban in 2020.
The 115 charges against City continue to loom large over the Etihad like a black cloud, and it might take another two years before we learn what kind of punishment, if any, the European champions will get.
