Everton appeal second points deduction for PSR breaches

Everton have formally appealed their two-point deduction for breaching the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability rules (PSR).

The Toffees were handed a second PSR sanction this season earlier this month, this time for breaches in the accounting period ending in 2022-23.

It meant they slipped closer to the relegation zone ahead of tonight’s trip to Chelsea.

The club say they have launched an appeal in a statement which read: “Everton can confirm that it has formally lodged its appeal of the two-point deduction imposed last week by a Premier League commission following a breach of the Profit and Sustainability rules in FY23.

“The Club will not be making any further comment at this time.”

Everton successfully appealed their first punishment of 10 points that was handed out in November, with it later reduced to six.

They hinted they were going to appeal the second sanction when it was first handed down.

At the time, a club statement read: “While the club’s position has been that no further sanction was appropriate, the club is pleased to see that the commission has given credit to the majority of the issues raised by the club,” an Everton statement said.

“[These include] the concept of double punishment, the significant mitigating circumstances facing the club due to the war in Ukraine and the high level of co-operation and early admission of the club’s breach.

“Everton remains committed to working collaboratively with the league on all matters relating to PSR but is extremely concerned by the inconsistency of different commissions in respect of points deductions applied.

“The club would like to place on record its thanks to the Fan Advisory Board and other fan groups for their submissions during this process, and to all Evertonians for their ongoing patience and unstinting support.

“The club and its legal representatives have begun the preparations to appeal the commission’s decision.”
