Leeds' footballing future in doubt

Struggling football club may not be in a position to start the new season if HMRC block on CVA is not removed

Leeds United may find themselves unable to start the new football league
season, KPMG has warned.

Partners from the Big Four firm were appointed as the football club’s
administrators earlier this year and the comments were made at a High Court
hearing in Leeds, where the club’s plans to enter into a Company Voluntary
Agreement are being questioned by HM Revenue & Customs.

Last month a Ken Bates-led consortium had to sweat on a recount of votes in
getting the CVA approved, but this latest twist in the saga will do nothing to
appease shareholders.

KPMG said that unless the club is able to leave administration, the Football
League may not let it start the season.
