Financial Fair Play (FFP) and the Profitability and Sustainability (P&S) regulations will be one of the hot topics at the EFL’s annual general meeting in Portugal from 5th to 7th June and it is something Blackburn Rovers “have to keep an eye on.” 

EFL clubs are not allowed to register losses of more than £39 million over three years to stay within the guidelines, and Rovers registered a loss of nearly £17 million in 2018.
