The EFL Board has today received an update of the position in respect of ongoing matters at Bury FC.
Following a lengthy discussion the Board agreed that progress had been made with regard to the outstanding evidence requested by the League.
However, the information provided is still not enough to demonstrate that the Club has the ability to immediately settle all football debts, meet the obligations to unsecured creditors and ensure the Club has the appropriate financial resources for the 2019/20 season.
As a result the Board has regrettably determined that Bury’s League One fixture away at Accrington Stanley, scheduled to take place on Saturday 10 August 2019, will be suspended under the provision of EFL Regulation 28.2.
In accordance with EFL Regulations, Accrington Stanley were consulted on the matter prior to the decision being finalised.
The EFL acknowledges this remains a difficult and challenging period for the Club, their players and supporters; and will continue to work with the ownership at Bury FC as it looks to resolve all outstanding matters.
