Premier League confirm Manchester City trial date set as Arsenal and Tottenham await points deduction outcome

Manchester City’s legal case with the Premier League could potentially be resolved soon. The league’s chief executive, Richard Masters, stated on Tuesday that a date has been set for procedures to be heard in a sports tribunal. However, he did not reveal the date.

The league has accused Manchester City of over 80 alleged financial rule violations, as well as 30 further allegations of failure to cooperate with an investigation. The allegations surfaced in February of last year. If found guilty, penalties may include point deductions or expulsion from the top division.

Speaking before a parliamentary select committee, Masters faced questions about why certain financial investigations, such as those involving Everton and Nottingham Forest, were completed fast while others, like City’s, took longer.

“The volume and character of the charges laid before Man City, which I obviously cannot talk about at all, are being heard in a completely different environment,” Masters said. “There is a date set for that proceeding. I cannot unfortunately tell you when that is, but that is progressing.”

The Daily Mail reported in November that the hearing would take place in late autumn of this year.

After facing several allegations, City has won the Champions League for the first time, the Premier League title and the club world  champion.
