Reading: Championship club deducted six points for breaking EFL financial rules

Reading have been deducted six points by the English Football League for breaching financial rules.

The EFL determined the Royals lost £57.8m between 2017 and 2021 - the EFL's limit for that period is £39m.

The club have a further six-point deduction suspended until the end of next season, provided they comply with a business plan.

It sees Reading drop from 16th to 19th in the Championship, on 16 points, four clear of the relegation places.

The Berkshire club have been under a transfer embargo since the summer as a result of their breach of profit and sustainability rules.

  • Can't wait to see what Benjy Nurick has to say about this one. Doubt if he's in the Club car park with his binoculars out.


  • Everything about that song and video is just wrong.
    I spend a lot of time in Reading, not withstanding Pearl River takeaway i've never seen an east Asian person in the city.
