Birmingham City Set For Points Reduction After Breaching EFL Regulations

Birmingham City Set For Points Reduction After Breaching EFL Regulations
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

Championship club Birmingham City will be deducted nine points for breaching profitability and sustainability rules, thrusting the club into a relegation battle.

The Blues are currently in 13th place, but a points deduction will bring them back to 18th and just five points clear of relegation with eight games remaining.

The measure means Birmingham are set to be the first club hit with a points deduction since the EFL introduced its new profitability and sustainability regulations two seasons ago.

In July 2018, the club were put under a transfer embargo after a £37.5m loss in the 12 months before that. Losses over £13m per year over a three-year period are not allowed.

BBC report that while the EFL have not officially confirmed the points deduction, there will also be further financial penalties.
