A date has been set for Manchester City’s FFP case to be heard. Premier League CEO Richard Masters revealed the news today. With Everton and Nottingham Forest having been charged for breaching the Premier League’s profitability and sustainability rules (PSR) in recent days Manchester City’s case has become a topic of discussion.
Premier League CEO Richard Masters provided the update when speaking to the Culture, Media and Sport select committee. In quotes shared by the Mirror Masters revealed a date has been set for Manchester City’s hearing. He couldn’t reveal the date but he told the committee: “There is a date set for that proceeding. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you when that is but it is progressing. I can’t give any details on Man City beyond saying that a date has been set. I can’t tell you when that date is.”
With a date being set for the hearing it would appear that an ending is in sight. Manchester City have welcomed the hearing as an opportunity for the club to present irrefutable evidence to clear the club’s name.
The 115 charges and the pending FFP case have hovered above the club’s head since they were announced in February 2023. If there is an ending in sight it would be welcomed to get some closure on the matter.
A conclusion would allow Manchester City, City fans and the wider game to move on from the ongoing saga. While a resolution isn’t coming in the near future an ending to the case will allow the game to breathe. The topic has rumbled away in the background since the Premier League began their investigation into the champions in December 2018 as reported by Sky News.
With a hearing on the case on the horizon the saga may finally be concluding.
