Gaming the beautiful game

Earlier this year UEFA opened an investigation into Manchester City for alleged financial fair play (FFP) violations.

This investigation was prompted by publication by German News magazine Der Spiegal of a series of claims, based on leaked documents, that the club violated FFP rules. 

Manchester City deny these allegations releasing an official statement: “Manchester City welcomes the opening of a formal UEFA investigation as an opportunity to bring to an end the speculation resulting from the illegal hacking and out of context publication of City emails. The Club’s published accounts are full and complete and a matter of legal and regulatory record”.
