Which team is legal to buy in the Premier League?

A legal team representing Liverpool FC, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City FC have called for a legal review of the Premier Leagues’ rules to determine if they are still within the “spirit and letter” of the rule book.

In their application for an appeal, the three clubs have asked the European Court of Justice (ECJ) to overturn the ruling that a club can be allowed to buy into the Premier Division if it is an “entity with a commercial or professional purpose”.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the legal teams argue that the Premier leagues’ legal frameworks have not changed in 50 years, with the rules in place for years prior to this, and the current regulations do not apply to the current Premier League season.

The clubs are calling for a review of whether the current legal framework can be applied to the Premier league, in the light of the fact that, since its inception in 1991, the Premier leagues have had three successive years of the best-ever domestic league table.

In the case of the Liverpool FC club, the petition asks the ECJ to overturn an earlier ruling that Liverpool FC can be bought into the league.

In 1991, a group of clubs including Liverpool FC applied to be allowed into the top flight of English football.

They were granted permission in 1992, when they were relegated from the Premier division to the Football League.

However, that was not the last time that Liverpool and other clubs were granted the opportunity to join the Premier ranks.

In 2002, the clubs were allowed to join as a “rebranded” Premier League, which was created in response to the European Cup Winners Cup and also because of the financial success of the new Champions League.

Following that period of time, the European clubs’ clubs were able to enter into commercial partnerships with the Premier teams, but only if they were commercial players.

However in 2007, a new European club rule came into force which allowed clubs to enter the Premier divisions as “entities” with a “commercial or professional aim”.

The current Premier leagues are, however, not recognised as an “entity” in the European regulations, meaning that clubs cannot be registered as such.

So, clubs are allowed to be registered, but they are not recognised in the regulations as being an “enterprise” within the context of the European Union rules, as that would mean that they could be registered under the new rules.

In response to this situation, Liverpool FC and others were allowed into both the Premier and Championship divisions of the competition in the early stages of the 2007/08 season.

But the new rule was not always adhered to, and clubs were then able to take advantage of this opportunity by taking advantage of the opportunity afforded by the European club rules to register as “entity” clubs, a position which they hold today.

The petition also asks the European court to determine whether the Premier clubs can continue to be an “Entities” within European law, and whether the rules of the current rules apply in the case.

The current regulations are still applied in the sense that they are based on the “legitimate commercial purposes” which were given to the clubs by the leagues’ legal bodies in the context set out in the rules, which the legal groups argue is not compatible with the spirit and letter of the existing rules.

The three clubs’ legal teams say the current rule “does not adequately define what constitutes a ‘entity’ within the EU rules”, and that it is “impossible to interpret the relevant rules in a way that would avoid the application of the principles of competition” when applying them to the existing regulations.

The legal teams are also calling for the ECI to order a review, so that the current EU rules can be changed to allow for a wider range of clubs to register within the Premier rules, “with the aim of protecting competition from predatory ownership”.

Liverpool FC, for example, is not registered as a Premier League club, while Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspurs are not registered either.

The case is being heard by a Luxembourg-based judge, and it is expected that a decision will be made by the end of this month.
