Manchester City could face a massive points deduction or demotion to the Championship

The biggest test for football in a century is scheduled for late 2019.

According to Mail Sport, the Premier League and Manchester City have set a date for their confrontation in front of an impartial panel, in what is likely to be the largest hearing in the history of the league.

After launching a probe in 2018, the premier league accused its champions of 115 purported financial regulation violations in February. Both the competition and the club have kept silent throughout a protracted drama, refusing to comment when contacted.

It is revealed, nevertheless, that the showdown’s original date was set for late autumn of 2024.

The predicament might not get to a resolution until the end of the following season, when City manager Pep Guardiola’s current contract is set to expire, according to those with understanding of the matter.

It is acknowledged that the procedure, which has been extremely private, is currently at the phase where testimony from witnesses are being obtained; this is probably going to continue until spring of next year.

If the trial proceeds as scheduled, a decision would probably be made in the summer of 2025.

On the other hand, delays could cause the process to drag on longer. It would be impossible to conceive a scenario in which they would not appeal, should any party find the final result unacceptable. A situation like that would take a long time.

City may look at other options if necessary, but they couldn’t apply to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, where they were able to successfully get their Champions League ban from UEFA revoked.

Over the course of 14 seasons, starting in 2009–10, City is accused of breaking 115 laws.

The accusations centre on allegations of financial reporting irregularities and noncompliance with an ongoing Premier League inquiry that began in 2018. City disputes any misconduct.

A month after City’s charges were made public, in March, Everton was charged with violating financial regulations. Earlier this month, they were handed a 10-point deduction, which they have now challenged.
