While the issue of the 115 charges against Manchester City, brought by the Premier League, looms large, the two will face off before the independent commission later this year.

On Tuesday it was revealed, as first reported by the Times, that Manchester City were launching legal action against the Premier League over its recently passed associated party transaction (APT) that gained the approval of the 14 majority needed to bring it into competition law.

City, recently crowned champions for a fourth time in a row and the sixth time in seven years, will face off in an arbitration hearing between June 10 and 21, with the club believing that the APT rules passed in February are unlawful. What are Manchester City unhappy about? When Newcastle United were acquired by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF) back in late 2021, by December of that year new rules around APT had been voted on by clubs.

Those APT rules were introduced in an attempt to stop any plans to accelerate the growth of Newcastle’s commercial revenue by them leaning on simpatico relationships with big businesses that they had in the Middle East.
