Club Statement | 06/04/21
Further to national media reports on Tuesday morning, Cardiff City can confirm that it has been placed under EFL transfer embargo.
The Club can assure supporters that this is part of an administrative process imposed by the EFL. It has no bearing on the day-to-day running of the club, nor its finances or sustainability. It will not affect us trading in the summer 2021 transfer window.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the British government extended the deadline for companies to submit company accounts to Companies House by three months. The Club chose to take this option, in the knowledge that a short term EFL embargo would be imposed.
Cardiff City FC will be submitting its accounts to the EFL before the end of April 2021, at which point the embargo will be lifted.
