Manchester City issue ‘legal warning letters’ with executive team holding significant ‘confidence’ on 115 charges fate



| Last Updated:


The executive team at Manchester City are holding significant confidence around the club’s fate regarding the 115 charges issued by the Premier League, according to reports.

It is now over one year since Manchester City and their supporters were first made aware of the charges issued on the Etihad Stadium club by the Premier League, following a lengthy investigation that the division claimed the club did not engage with.

Back in February 2023, the Premier League charged Manchester City with over 100 breaches of its financial rules following a four-year investigation, referring the club to an independent commission.

In direct response to the statement release with little to no prior warning for Manchester City, the Club stated that not only were they “surprised” by the charges, but that they were and are supported by a “body of irrefutable evidence”.

Now, according to the information of Manchester City insider ‘Tolmie’s Hairdoo’ on X, the entire executive team at the Etihad Stadium has a ‘level of confidence far greater’ than before the CAS trial in 2020 that the Club will have their name ‘cleared’ at the independent tribunal.

It is further revealed in a staggering development that Manchester City have ‘sent out a number of legal warning letters’ to demand ‘they cease and desist or action will now be taken’, with the Etihad club doing this from a ‘position of strength and knowledge’.

In their last official and public comment on the situation back in February 2023, Manchester City said in a club statement, “Manchester City is surprised by the issuing of these alleged breaches of the Premier League Rules, particularly given the extensive engagement and vast amount of detailed materials that the EPL has been provided with.

“The club welcomes the review of this matter by an independent commission, to impartially consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence that exists in support of its position. As such we look forward to this matter being put to rest once and for all.”

Wider media reports covering the situation involving the two parties have indicated that an independent hearing around the 115 charges could take place this Autumn, with a resolution and verdict expected prior to the end of the 2024/25 campaign.

Back in November, MailSport’s Mike Keegan reported that both the Premier League and Manchester City had agreed a date at which they will face off in front of an independent panel, initially scheduled for the late autumn of 2024.

Speaking during a recent public media address, Premier League CEO Richard Masters stated, “We can’t comment on the case, the date is set. The case will resolve itself at some point in the near future.”
