Deducted 10 points in November, Appel makes final decision for Everton
Everton's penalty for breaching the Premier League's Financial Fair Play has been reduced from 10 points to 6 points, following an appeal by the "blues".

The club was stripped of 10 points by the Premier League's Independent Commission in November for breaching profit and sustainability rules for three consecutive seasons, until the 2021-22 edition.

The penalty, the biggest in Premier League history, took Everton from 14th place to 19th in the table.

However, today's decision by the Appeal Board sees Everton regain 4 points, moving up to 15th from their current 17th place, ahead of Nottingham Forest and Brentford.

In the reaction made after this decision, Everton emphasizes that they are happy that their appeal resulted in the reduction of the sanction.
"Everton can confirm that the Appeal Board has concluded that the points deduction imposed by an independent Premier League commission in November should be reduced from 10 points to six points, with immediate effect.

While the club is still processing the Appeals Board's decision, we are pleased that our appeal has resulted in the points sanction being reduced.

The club is still considering the wider implications of the decision and will make no further comment at this time, other than to thank our Supporters Advisory Board and other supporter groups throughout this process and all Evertonians for their support continuous and the patience shown" - is written in Everton's reaction.
