Blades launch High Court appeal

Published Add your comment

Sheffield United on Wednesday launched a High Court appeal against an arbitration panel´s decision to dismiss their claim against the Premier League.

The panel on Tuesday turned down the Blades´ claim for a new disciplinary commission to be set up to deal with West Ham over the Carlos Tevez affair. Sheffield United, who were relegated from the top flight on the last day of last season, are demanding the Hammers be docked points for breaching league rules on third-party agreements.

A Premier League spokesman said in a statement: "The Premier League has just been advised by our legal team that Sheffield United have launched an appeal in the High Court under Section 69(2)(b) of the Arbitration Act 1996 against the award of our arbitration panel on Tuesday under Section S of our Rules."
