Nottingham Forest are punished with a loss of four points in the Premier League

Nottingham Forest was punished by the Premier League with the loss of four points in the current edition of the English Championship, for having violated financial fair play rules during the previous season (2022/23).

The decision was announced this Monday, after evaluation by an independent commission from the English league.

As a result, Nottingham Forest’s case was referred to an independent Premier League commission on January 15th. The club had admitted it had breached the English league’s £61m Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSRs) limit by £34.5m.

This commission determined the punishment of losing four points in the 2023/24 English Championship after two days of hearings this March, in which Nottingham Forest had the opportunity to present “mitigating factors”, according to a statement from the Premier League.

English league clubs can make losses of up to £105 million over a three-year period, but Nottingham Forest’s case was different because they spent two years of that cycle in the Championship, the second tier.

Given this, Nottingham Forest, which was in 17th place in the 2023/24 Premier League table, with 25 points, dropped to 18th, now with 21 points.

It is worth remembering that this is the second case in the current season in which a Premier League club has been punished with the loss of league points for violating these sustainability rules. 

The same had happened to Everton, whose 10-point penalty was reduced to six points in February. Nottingham Forest can appeal the decision.
