EFL statement: Charlton Athletic

27 July 2020

The EFL has today written to Charlton Athletic requesting further information and a meeting with the Club, the current majority owner of ESI and also the proposed new owners, as it seeks to clarify the ongoing ownership issues at the Club in the context of the EFL Regulations.

The League is aware of the frustrations and concerns the current situation is having on all those associated with the Club, including staff, players and supporters, particularly in recent weeks whilst it has attempted to try and work through the various and complex challenges out of the public eye.

Extensive correspondence has been exchanged with the Club in respect of outstanding information that is still required to be submitted to the EFL and the League will continue to work with the Club.

However, it remains the responsibility of the Club and any prospective owner(s) to demonstrate that the requirements of the EFL Regulations are met.  The Club is aware of the consequences of not meeting those requirements. 

The League will not provide a running commentary on this matter but will update as appropriate.
