The EFL notes today’s announcement made by Charlton Athletic in respect of a change control having taken place at the Club.
The matter of the sale of Charlton Athletic (or any Club) is a matter for the interested parties, with the EFL’s role in this process to solely consider the applications made to it under EFL Regulations.
On Friday 18 September 2020 the EFL issued confirmation that it did not regard Mr Sandgaard as subject to a Disqualifying Condition in accordance with Appendix 3 of EFL Regulations (Owners’ and Directors’ Test), and that it had received the appropriate evidence as to the source and sufficiency of funding as required by Regulation 16.19.
The League is not party to the ongoing court proceedings taking place and therefore it remains a matter for the respective parties to resolve and as a result we are not in a position to comment.
In addition, On Tuesday 15 September 2020 representatives of the EFL held a meeting with members of the Charlton Athletic Supporters’ Trust (CAST) and Football Supporters Association (FSA). The meeting was cordial and constructive and gave CAST representatives the opportunity to share a range of views in regard to developments at the Club over the past nine months.
It was agreed to keep the lines of communication open and arrange a further meeting as we collectively seek to achieve a positive outcome and future for Charlton Athletic Football Club.
