FSA statement on Everton points deduction
Posted on 17th November 2023
Football Supporters’ Association response to today’s (17th November 2023) Premier League statement that Everton will receive an immediate 10-point deduction for a breach of the profitability and sustainability rules:
The Football Supporters’ Association said:
“The FSA has always argued that football needs an independent regulator with real time powers to intervene before clubs get themselves into positions where a points deduction is handed out.
“Today’s news once again shows the urgent need for the Government to deliver an independent regulator for football as soon as possible. This shouldn’t be happening.
“We’ve seen far too many clubs across the game find themselves in financial trouble and our sympathy is always with the supporters – they didn’t create the problems but they are punished alongside their club.”
