Man City launch Legal Action Against Premier League

Manchester City, recently crowned English champions, have launched a legal action against the Premier League.

According to the Daily Mail, quoting The Times, City will look to end the league’s Associated Party Transaction (APT) rules, which according to them are unlawful.

It was reported in February, 2024, that City sent threat of legal action against the Premier League’s APT rules and it has been confirmed the club went ahead with it and a date for the hearing has now been fixed for June 10th.

The rules, which were introduced in December 2021 are designed to maintain competitiveness by preventing top-flight clubs from inflating commercial deals with companies linked to their owners.

However, in a 165-page legal document, City claim that the rules have been approved by rivals to stifle their success on the pitch as a ‘tyranny of the majority’.
