Man City and and the Financial Fair Play regulation

Man City

Alleged overspending, bloated sponsorship agreements and falsification of records have led to a 2-year ban for Manchester City from all UEFA club competitions. Despite a settlement agreement with the UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) in 2014, the club has also been fined €30m (£25m).

Manchester City's annual accounts are explored from 2005-2018, including employee benefits, the cost of player acquisitions and revenue streams. Read the full piece here.
