Premier League CEO Richard Masters to attend Arsenal vs Everton on final day of the season


The Premier League has confirmed chief executive Richard Masters will attend Arsenal’s final game of the season against Everton on Sunday, while chair Alison Brittain will go to Manchester City as the title race goes to the final day of the season.

This means Masters will avoid the scenario of again presenting City with the Premier League trophy when they have been charged with 115 breaches of the league’s financial fair play rules. Masters was the Etihad last season when they were crowned champions.

When asked about that last month, Masters replied: “We can’t comment on the case, the date has been set, and the case will resolve itself in the near future.”

Asked whether a second City title while the 115 charges remained outstanding was a problem, he added: “It’s not for the football authorities to start being selective about who they would like to win the league. The key point is that you’ve got that jeopardy until the final day.”

A hearing date is in place for October or November this year, with a decision expected by the summer of 2025 – still more than a year away.

City strongly deny the charges.

After beating Tottenham Hotspur away on Tuesday night, a victory for Manchester City at home to West Ham United will be enough to secure their fourth consecutive title.

Arsenal, in second after their north London rivals failed to do them a favour, can still win the league if they beat Everton at the Emirates and City draw or lose.

Sunday will be the 10th time the title has been decided on the last day of the season in the Premier League era.
