Independent Disciplinary Commissions and League Arbitration Panels

17 August 2020

There have been a number of proceedings that have taken place in recent months and with the majority of these matters having now been concluded.

Birmingham City

In March 2020, an Independent Disciplinary Commission dismissed a misconduct charge brought by the EFL against Birmingham City. The EFL subsequently appealed the decision and an Independent League Arbitration panel upheld the appeal and found the Club guilty of misconduct.
