Nottingham Forest’s Point Deduction Appeal Rejected

Nottingham Forest’s Point Deduction Appeal Rejected

07/05/24 15:45

Nottingham Forest’s appeal to have their four point deduction overturned has been rejected.

Forest were deducted four points back in January after being found guilty of breaching Profitability and Sustainability rules. It was found that they were £34.5 million above their permitted threshold of £61 million.

Usually, clubs are allowed a maximum loss of £105 million over three years. This unless they spend any of that period in the Championship in which it drops by £22 million per season.

Back in November, Everton were penalised for similar breaches and handed a ten point deduction. However this changed to just six points following their appeal of the breach.

The result of the appeal could have changed Nottingham Forest’s survival hopes considerably. A reduction of at least two points would have meant that Burnley were relegated from the Premier League and would have taken Forest further away from the drop.

Instead they remain in 17th place - just three points clear of the bottom three with two games remaining.

The club are yet to comment on the rejection of the appeal.
