How FFP affects City

In December, Bristol City declared their latest accounts for the 2016/17 season as every football club in England has had to do.

As reported earlier this year, City declared a loss of £3.26m for that season with a loss £13.2m reported in 2015-16.

So what does this mean in accordance with the Financial Fair Play rules and what are they?

The FFP rules prevent clubs from spending more than is possible or viable for the club to prevent what then-president of UEFA, Michel Platini, labelled ‘financial doping’. Breaking these rules can lead to sanctions for clubs such as transfer bans, point deductions or prize money being withheld or withdrawn.

In the Championship, clubs are examined on a tri-yearly basis and they cannot exceed losses of more than £13m in a season or £39m over three seasons. With the last two seasons totalling a loss of £16.46m for the Robins, they cannot have losses of £12.54m or more next season if they want to avoid facing sanctions.
