QPR not barred from Championship

The London club???s relegation from the Premier League was confirmed last Sunday when they suffered a 6-0 defeat at Manchester City.

And they may now be facing a fine from the Football League for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations when they were last in the Championship two seasons ago.

The club are challenging the rules legally and the process may not be concluded by the start of the 2015/16 season but a football league spokesman says the dispute will not have any impact on them returning to the second tier.

He said: “The club will be welcomed back into The Football League this summer ahead of it competing in the Sky Bet Championship season.”??

QPR and the Football League issued a joint-statement earlier this week, which said: ???Legal proceedings are ongoing between Queens Park Rangers and the Football League.

???QPR challenges the legality of the Football League???s Championship Financial Fair Play Rules and any charge against QPR (if any) for breach of FFP Rules shall not be commenced pending the outcome of that challenge.??

???The proceedings are confidential in nature and neither party is entitled to comment upon the proceedings until the independent arbitral panel has delivered its decision.???
