EFL Statement: Macclesfield Town

19 December 2019

An independent Disciplinary Commission has ruled that Macclesfield Town will be deducted six pointsfrom this season’s League Two table following a number of breaches of EFL Regulations.

At a hearing today the Club pleaded guilty to multiple charges in respect of non-payment of players on applicable due dates and also the non-fulfilment of a fixture in relation to its match with Crewe Alexandra, originally scheduled to take place on 7 December 2019.

The Commission, appointed in accordance with EFL Regulations, heard representations from both the EFL and Macclesfield Town, determining that a sporting sanction of 10 points, with four suspended, was appropriate when considering both the aggravating and mitigating factors in the case.

The six point deduction will be applied immediately with the decision remaining subject to appeal.
