Uefa punished Manchester United 300,000 euros (£257,000) for a “minor” violation of Financial Fair Play (FFP) guidelines.

They were one of several clubs sanctioned by Uefa under FFP rules in effect from 2019 to 2022.

United stated that they were “disappointed with the outcome.”

They did, however, add that the club accepted the sanction “for what Uefa acknowledges to be a minor technical violation of its previous Financial Fair Play rules.”

United went on to explain the basis for the punishment.

“This reflected a change in how Uefa adjusted for Covid-19 losses during the 2022 reporting period, allowing us to recognize only 15 million euros of the 281 million euros of revenues lost due to the pandemic within the FFP calculation.”
