Everton face threat of fresh punishment as ‘rules could be broken again’

Everton could be punished again by the Premier League if their next set of accounts fall foul of profit and sustainability rules, according to reports. The Toffees were deducted 10 points on Friday for alleged breaches following a five-day hearing, which took place last month.

The decision marked the biggest sporting sanction handed down in Premier League history and saw Everton drop to 19th in the table, with the Merseyside club only above bottom side Burnley on goal difference. They are expected to submit an appeal later this week in order to challenge the landmark ruling but could be punished again if their next set of accounts show further breaches.

It has been confirmed by the Premier League that clubs can be punished for breaching profit and sustainability rules in consecutive seasons, according to The Times. Accounts for the year ending June 2023 will need to be submitted by the end of March, but clubs have been asked to provide visibility by December 31 in order to determine profit and sustainability compliance.

The report adds that Everton will need to file a strong set of results for the last 12 months in order to avoid further punishment after posting losses of £120.9million in 2021 and £44.7m in 2022. The next three-year period will take into account the losses made in the final two years of the previous assessment plus the latest year.
