UEFA investigating Liverpool for possible FFP break-even breach

Thursday September 25th, 2014

UEFA announced Thursday that it is opening an investigation into seven clubs, including Liverpool, for a possible breach of Financial Fair Play Regulations.

The clubs are being investigated because they "disclosed a break-even deficit on the basis of their financial reporting periods ending in 2012 and 2013."

The full list of clubs included in the investigation are AS Monaco FC, AS Roma, Beşiktaş JK, FC Internazionale Milano, FC Krasnodar, Liverpool FC and Sporting Clube de Portugal.

From the UEFA release:

These clubs will need to submit additional monitoring information during October and November upon the deadlines set by the CFCB, subsequent to which an additional communication will be made and conservatory measures may be imposed.

There are 115 clubs overall who will now be monitored by UEFA and must submit further information, such as financial details.
