EFL Statement: Morecambe

17 February 2023

The EFL notes some of the inaccurate and unhelpful public comments being made in respect of a prospective acquisition of control at Morecambe Football Club.

As with any proposed change of control at an EFL Club, there are a number of requirements that need to be met in accordance with EFL Regulations which primarily relate to the Owners and Directors’ Test self-declaration, providing Future Financial Information, along with evidencing the source and sufficiency of any funding.

Whilst some of the information requested several months ago has been received, further details are still required, and the League has invited Mr Johal and his advisers to a meeting later this month to discuss further the proposed transaction.

No approval on any change of control at Morecambe will be made until the proposed purchaser and Club satisfy in full the requirements of the EFL’s Regulations and the appropriate levels of due diligence are completed.
