What are Man City’s 115 charges? Full list of FFP charges now suing Blues Premier League

Manchester City is facing 115 charges over alleged breaches of Premier League financial rules.

The club was sued in February 2023 over historic allegations that they breached the league’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules from 2009 to 2018. City strongly denies these allegations and has set up an independent committee to review the matter.




The Blues are now believed to have sued the Premier League as they seek to flout the league’s ‘unlawful’ Associated Party Transaction (APT) rules.
