Rivals of Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, and West Ham Challenge Premier League Decision, Official Statement Released


Nottingham Forest finds themselves embroiled in a legal battle with the Premier League after being hit with a four-point deduction for breaching Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR). The club has confirmed its intention to appeal this decision, which has pushed them into the relegation zone of the Premier League.

An independent commission determined that Forest had exceeded the allowed losses of £105 million over a three-year period, a violation of league regulations. This decision has drawn parallels with Everton, who faced a similar charge and were initially handed a 10-point deduction, later reduced to six points upon appeal. Everton is currently undergoing further proceedings, with a three-day hearing underway to address their case.

In response to the commission’s ruling, Nottingham Forest issued a strongly-worded statement expressing their disappointment and asserting that their trust and confidence in the Premier League had been compromised. The club emphasized its gratitude for the expedited handling of the matter while maintaining its stance against the imposed sanction.

“We were extremely dismayed by the tone and content of the Premier League’s submissions before the Commission. After months of engagement and exceptional cooperation throughout, this was unexpected and has harmed the trust and confidence we had in the Premier League.

“Of wider concern for all aspirant clubs is the disturbing effect this decision will have on the operation of the player trading model. This is the only model by which clubs outside of the small group at the very top end of the Premier League can realistically advance up the football pyramid.”
