Club Statement: EFL Commission

The backing of our fans has been integral, too, and the Club is grateful for their support, their belief, and the connection that has been re-established between all of us who care deeply about Birmingham City Football Club.

The Club is in receipt of the decision of an independent Disciplinary Commission in relation to the EFL’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules, over a three-year period since 2015/16.

The Club has put measures in place to ensure future spending is within acceptable limits and since August we have adhered to an EFL business plan, which imposed transfer restrictions upon us.

When the Club’s owners took over, Birmingham City Football Club was in a dire position and investment was critical across many aspects of the business, including the First Team, Women’s Team, Academy and the infrastructure.

Then, as now, decisions by the owners and the Board of Directors were taken with the Club’s best interests at heart and a determination to halt a cycle of decline and stagnation, with the intention of pushing on to fulfil ours and our fans' ambitions.

This season we have taken significant strides forward on and off the pitch and the owners commitment and intention to drive continued improvement of the Club’s fortunes will not diminish.

Under Manager Garry Monk, we have a very tight-knit squad of players who have performed with a sense of belonging, pride and passion. We have no doubt that will continue right to the season’s end.

The backing of our fans has been integral, too, and the Club is grateful for their support, their belief, and the connection that has been re-established between all of us who care deeply about Birmingham City Football Club has been pleasing to see.

Birmingham City Football Club notes that it has 14 days in which to appeal the decision of the independent Disciplinary Commission and with that in mind we will be making no further comment.
