EFL Statement: Macclesfield Town sanctioned

7 May 2020

An independent Disciplinary Commission has determined that Macclesfield Town will be deducted a further seven points from this season’s League Two table following breaches of EFL Regulations.

The two latest misconduct charges brought against the Club by the EFL relate to:

  1. Non-fulfilment of a fixture in relation to the postponement of the scheduled League Two fixture against Plymouth Argyle on Saturday 21 December 2019.
  2. Non-payment of players on the applicable payment dates due in February 2020 as per the terms of the players’ contracts.

The panel ruled that an additional sporting sanction should apply with four points activated immediately, and a further deduction of two points suspended on the condition that the Club does not breach any further Regulations this season

The Club was handed a four-point deduction earlier this year, with three suspended following the decision of an independent Disciplinary Commission and subsequent Arbitration Panel in respect of previous charges.  The three suspended points will now be applied after the Club admitted the latest misconduct charges which were brought before an independent Disciplinary Commission in accordance with EFL Regulations., making a total of 11 points deducted from the Club’s 2019/20 campaign.
