Administration loophole closed

Published Add your comment

Football League clubs have closed the loophole that allowed Leeds to go into administration without suffering a 10-point deduction for next season.

From now on, any club going into administration after the fourth Thursday in March will have the 10-point deduction suspended until it is known whether the punishment will have "a material effect".

If the club is relegated, the sanction will then be imposed for the start of the following season. If the club has not been relegated, it will suffer the points deduction in the current season.
