In an unprecedented move, the English Premier League has charged Manchester City with more than 100 breaches of its financial rules following a four-year investigation into the Abu Dhabi-owned club's finances dating back to the 2009-10 season.

In a statement listing the multiple charges, the Premier League said City had breached rules requiring the club to provide "accurate financial information that gives a true and fair view of the club's financial position, in particular with respect to its revenue (including sponsorship revenue)”. The Premier League said City's failure to provide accurate information occurred every season from 2009-10 through to 2017-18.
