BREAKING: Derby County punished with 21 points deduction; now sits at the bottom of the Championship table with -3 points

The EFL Club entered into Administration in September 2021. As a result of that, Derby County was handed a 12-points deduction. However, they appealed against the decision but withdrew their appeal last week.

And now a new nine-point penalty has been applied immediately. That means a total of 21 points has been deducted from Derby County in this season’s 2021/22 Championship table.

Derby County now sit at the bottom of the Championship table with -3 points, 18 points from safety. A further three-point deduction will take effect if the club does not comply with the terms of the budget as set out in the ‘Agreed Decision’ for the remainder of season 2021/22.

Trevor Birch, EFL Chief Executive said: “The EFL’s objective throughout this ongoing process has been to ensure that the principles of the Regulations were upheld on behalf of all Clubs. In order to assess the sporting sanction that was applicable to apply to these breaches, previous P&S cases have been carefully reviewed and guidance taken from them. The EFL has also considered the P&S sanction guidelines as well as mitigation put forward by the Club.”

“Given the complex circumstances of the case and the various outstanding regulatory issues between the EFL and Derby County, the League is satisfied at the agreed outcome and the sensible approach taken by both parties in negotiating this outcome and in respect of the appeal withdrawal. Our focus is to continue to work with the Joint Administrators to assist them in securing a long-term future for the Club.”

Carl Jackson, Quantuma Joint Administrator, said: “This has been a difficult matter to navigate bearing in mind the various issues concerned. Whilst point deductions are never ideal for any Club, it was critical to the Club’s future that all matters were concluded between the EFL and the Club in relation to historical issues. This conclusion allows us to proceed with our restructuring strategy for the Club with prospective interested parties.”
