12-point deduction for Owls … for next season

Wednesday will kick off next season on minus 12 points, following today’s long-awaited decision over the EFL misconduct charge.

The independent disciplinary commission announced the punishment as 12 points for the 2020-21 campaign, rather than for this season, which would have seen us relegated.

In a club statement, Wednesday said: “The club is extremely disappointed that the commission has imposed a 12-point deduction to be applied next season and awaits the written reasons for this decision.

“The club welcomes the decision that the commission cleared Sheffield Wednesday of the charge of acting in bad faith in its dealings with the EFL.

“Further, the commission decided not to apply a 12-point deduction this season, thereby imposing relegation.

“The club will await the written reasons for the sanction and upon receipt will digest and consider the full detail with its legal advisers before making any further comment.”
