Nottingham Forest Penalized With Four-Point Deduction Over Financial Breaches


Nottingham Forest has incurred a four-point deduction for breaching Premier League financial regulations, as announced by the English top flight on Monday, consequently relegating the club into the relegation zone.

The Premier League disclosed that Forest admitted to surpassing the profitability and sustainability rules (PSR) threshold of £61 million ($77.5 million) by £34.5 million.

This penalty makes them the second top-flight team this season to face consequences for PSR violations, following Everton’s 10-point deduction in November, which was later reduced to six upon appeal. Everton awaits a potential additional points penalty concerning another charge.

As a result of Forest’s punishment, they plummet into the bottom three, trailing Luton by one point and Everton by four.

Typically, clubs are permitted maximum losses of £105 million over a three-year evaluation period, with reductions of £22 million per season for any years spent in the Championship during that timeframe.

Forest’s promotion to the Premier League in May 2022 means that two seasons of their assessment period were spent in the Championship.

Forest retains the option to appeal the penalty, with the Premier League aiming to conclude the process by May 24, shortly after the top-flight season’s final weekend.

In January, the club issued a statement expressing confidence in a prompt and equitable resolution following the initial charges.
