Premier League’s chief executive, Richard Masters has revealed that a date has been set for Manchester City’s financial rule break charges hearing.
The Premier League champions were charged with 115 alleged breaches of financial regulations in February 2023 after opening an investigation in 2018.
Quizzed by MPs on Tuesday morning over several issues relating to the top flight, one of the topics up for discussion with Masters was the City’s charges.
Masters subsequently confirmed that a date had been set, before adding ‘but I can’t say when that is’.
He then insisted ‘the volume and character’ of the charges against City are different to those against Everton and Nottingham Forest, after those two clubs were hit with Premier League charges on Monday for breaking spending rules. They face the risk of a points deduction this season if found guilty.
City are accused of breaching 115 regulations over 14 seasons from 2009-10 onwards.
The charges include claims over financial reporting and a lack of co-operation with a Premier League investigation which was opened in 2018. City deny any wrongdoing.
