Everton fans protest points sanction by flying banner over Etihad

The fallout from Everton’s 10-point deduction continues, as a fan group organized a protest banner to be flown over the Etihad Stadium during Manchester City’s Premier League game against Liverpool. This article delves into the controversy surrounding the deduction and the fans’ response.

Everton Fans Protest 10-Point Deduction with Banner at Etihad Stadium
During Manchester City’s Premier League game against Liverpool on Saturday, an Everton fan group flew a banner over the Etihad Stadium to protest the club’s 10-point deduction for breaching financial rules. The banner, organized by The 1878s fan group, read “Premier League = corrupt” and was flown during the second half of the game, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

The 10-point deduction, the largest in Premier League history, dropped Everton from 14th to 19th place on the table. The club has called the sanction “wholly disproportionate and unjust,” and manager Sean Dyche expressed shock at the enormity of the penalty.

The banner protest was in response to the fact that there has been no decision on the 115 alleged breaches of financial rules by champions Manchester City. Everton has stated that they will monitor decisions made in other cases concerning the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules with great interest.

In addition to the Everton banner, a separate demonstration took place at the Etihad Stadium during the first half of the game. A banner organized by Amnesty International called for the release of UAE activist Ahmed Mansoor, reading “UAE: Free Ahmed Mansoor”.
