Manchester City sues Premier League over 'unfair' financial fair play regulations

Manchester City has decided that the best course of action is to sue the Premier League!

The club faces potential sanctions for violating financial fair play rules.

Manchester City is "under investigation" for breaching financial fair play regulations, particularly due to sponsorship deals with companies that are actually linked to the club's owners, and severe sanctions are looming! While this is nothing new, the current champions of the English Premier League have decided to counterattack after the majority of Premier League clubs agreed to implement even stricter financial fair play rules.

City aims to convince the court and other clubs that these rules are unfair and that the club, facing allegations of up to 115 violations, is suffering financial harm! The English champions even claim that it is a "tyranny of the majority" since only 14 out of 20 clubs need to vote in favor to pass such measures.

The lawyers representing Manchester City have drafted a 165-page lawsuit. They will present it to the court on Monday.

The main issue Manchester City faces is the ban on "inflated" sponsorship deals with companies that are, in some way, connected to the club's owners. These rules came into effect when the Saudis purchased Newcastle United.

Manchester City recently became the first club in Premier League history to win the title in four consecutive seasons.
