Hull City challenge FA Council over name change

Tue 30th Sep 2014 | Legal

The Football Association has agreed with Hull City to clarify the position regarding the club’s name change application.

Hull owner Assem Allam revealed earlier this month that he had reacted to April's FA Council's decision by putting the club up for sale and mounting an appeal.

The Egyptian initially claimed the case was being handled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, who reported no knowledge of it, and it was later revealed the appeal was being heard by the FA.

A confidentiality clause meant the governing body had been unable to confirm the appeal, but a statement on Tuesday read: "The club has chosen to commence an arbitration under Rule K of the Rules and Regulations of The Football Association to challenge the decision of The FA Council.

"The Football Association and the club have agreed to confirm that an arbitration has commenced and once a decision has been reached it will be published."
