Swindon Town Statement on EFL Agreed Decision

16 September 2021

Swindon Town Football Club are happy to have come to an Agreed Decision with the English Football League over the non-payment of wages.

The Football Club was charged with Misconduct by the EFL for failing to comply with Regulation 63.7 after players were not paid in June 2021.

We have worked with the EFL closely to come to a resolution on this matter, and we have accepted the Proposed Sanction from the EFL which will see the Football Club bear the costs of the ratification of the Agreed Decision.

There is also a suspended 3-point deduction that won't come into effect unless the Football Club breaches Regulation 63.7 on or before 30 June 2022.

We would like to stress, however, that this is an issue that was inherited from previous ownership and all players and staff have now been paid what they were owed, and they now continue to be paid on time. 

We thank the EFL for working with us on this matter and we can assure all of our supporters that this will not be an issue moving forward.

We are also pleased that this particular issue can now be put to bed and we can move on and continue to focus on pushing our Football Club in the right direction.
