EFL charge dismissed

The Club welcomes the decision of the Disciplinary Commission and we have worked closely and amicably with the EFL on this matter since we were charged in May.

An independent Disciplinary Commission has dismissed an EFL misconduct charge against the Club.

The charge - which was denied - was in relation to an alleged breach of an agreed business plan.

The business plan was implemented last season after Blues admitted a breach of Profitability and Sustainability rules, for which we were docked nine points in March 2019

It means that there will be no further points deduction, no further punishment.

EFL STATEMENT: BIRMINGHAM CITY

The EFL notes the decision made by the independent Disciplinary Commission dismissing a misconduct charge brought by the EFL against Birmingham City in May 2019. That charge alleged the Club failed to adhere to elements of a business plan agreed with the Club following an earlier breach of Profitability and Sustainability Rules.

The decision remains subject to appeal and the League will consider the judgment in full before making any further comment.
