'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Championship clubs vote in favor of FFP

Championship clubs have today voted in favor of the Financial Fair Play model and will adopt the system as of the 2014/15 campaign.

The system, pioneered by UEFA in order to tackle the ever-increasing debt in football, will prohibit losses of over 6m.

Club's will be allowed to make a loss of 6m initially, with that figure being steadily cut down to 3m ahead for the 2014/15 season.

Any club that fails to adhere to these financial guidelines will be liable to face a fine from the Football League or a transfer embargo.

The new rules will also outlaw a club's owner loaning the club working capital when required.

Football League chairman Greg Clarke told BBC Sport: 'They will begin to lay the foundations for a league of financially self-sustaining football clubs.'

Money invested in infrastructure will not be counted in the club's losses, for example money spent on stadium or youth development.

League One and Two clubs will not adopt the model as yet but will continue to impose restriction on the proportion of turnover which can be spent on wages.
