QPR hearing begins today

Tue 3rd May 2011 | Legal

The Football Association will begin a four day hearing today that will determine the fate of QPR's promotion to the Premier League.

Rangers, whose victory of Watford on Saturday sealed their place in the Premier League next season, face a possible points deduction over seven breaches of FA regulations relating to the signing of Argentinian midfielder Alejandro Faurlin in 2009.

An Independent Regulatory Commission will hear the charges brought against the London club, with its verdict due to be delivered on Friday - just one day before the final round of Championship fixtures.

However, the club will have the right to appeal any decision which will further disrupt the final places of the teams at the top of Championship.

It was reported last week that QPR could be hit with a 15-point deduction, which would put them in the play-offs, reports that the FA were swift to distance themselves from.

The charges facing QPR concern the alleged existence of an agreement between the club and a third party in respect of Faurlin's economic rights, and the alleged failure by the club to notify the FA of that agreement before the player was registered to play in England in July 2009.

The club has also been charged with allegedly using or seeking to pay an unauthorised agent as part of the Faurlin deal, while both the club and chairman Gianni Paladini have further been charged with allegedly submitting false information in documents provided to the FA relating to a contract extension signed by Faurlin in October.

QPR and Paladini have denied the charges, which will be put before the commission's four-man panel.
