FL Alter Administration Rules

FL  Alter Administration Rules

The Football League is to make a change to their rules about clubs entering administration according to the BBC.

Both Leeds and Boston found a loophole in the rules which allowed them to time when they went into administration therefore avoiding starting next season with minus ten points.

The League have now decided to implement a cut-off date, although this date has yet to be decided, so that any club going into administration after this date will be punished the following season.

Leeds and Boston were both practically relegated when they chose to enter administration which meant the penalty was ineffective.

'The original intention of 'sporting sanctions',' said Lord Mawhinney, League Chairman, 'was that clubs would suffer a penalty for going into administration, as a spur for better financial management.

'None of our clubs has done anything wrong but we need to take steps to make these sanctions meaningful.'

The 'sporting sanctions' rule was brought in in 2003 to penalise a club ten points for going into administration hoping this would deter clubs from getting heavily into debt and seeking a quick-fix solution.
