Sheff Wed - Points deduction

Post by God is an Englishman »

Reports coming out that Sheff Wed about to get a deduction of 21 points.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

Sold Hillsborough and then it seems they changed the dates on the sale in order to avoid points deductions.

Wednesday claiming it is all above board and legal.

They were charged last month for it.

Excuse my ignorance on this, but why would a club get points deductions for selling something that I assume they owned?

Probably Financial Fair play, or something like that. Could be different years/seasons?

From my understanding, they declared it in the wrong year.

They used it to balance the books and not fall foul of the "salary cap" in that year.
