PFA threaten the EFL with further legal action over their introduction of limited squad sizes after players’ union successfully overturned plans to introduce a salary cap

  • The PFA are threatening legal action against the EFL over limited squad sizes
  • A letter from CEO Gordon Taylor was sent to all 72 clubs in the football league 
  • They have called for squad caps of 20 in League One and Two to be put at 25

The PFA are threatening further legal action against the EFL over their introduction of limited squad sizes this season.

In an explosive letter from chief executive Gordon Taylor to all 72 clubs, the PFA has called for the squad caps of 20 in League One and Two to be raised to 25 to prevent another costly legal dispute.

The players’ union were successful in overturning the EFL’s plans to introduce salary caps at an arbitration hearing earlier this year, and now want the squad limits removed. 

However, the EFL are refusing to budge from the cap of 25 in the Championship and 20 in the lower leagues that was agreed in the aftermath of the pandemic.

‘As frustrating as this is, unless another solution can be found, the PFA must now consider commencing a further arbitration claim and/or bringing other legal claims,’ Taylor writes.
