'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Leeds Arbitration Date Set

Leeds United's independent arbitration hearing will commence on April 14th as Ken Bates looks to prove that the 15 point penalty imposed on the team at the start of the season was un-just.

The hearing is designed to decide whether the punishment was valid, and will be argued by representatives of both the club and the Football League.

United agreed to go into arbitration under protest at the private nature of the proceedings, having previously warned those in the Ivory Towers that they faced a High Court battle as there should be 'nothing to hide.'

It now appears that Mr Bates accepted the private and confidential hearing 'under duress' as he feared that the argument would be dragged out past the end of the season. This would have most likely resulted in a similar situation to that of Sheffield United and West Ham last season, in which Blades were already relegated by the time any legal proceedings could occur.
