An FA Rule K Arbitral Panel set aside the decision of the FA Council to reject the Club’s application to change its playing name from Hull City to Hull Tigers for season 2014/2015. The Panel did not remit the matter to the FA Council, and the Club remains Hull City. The Club is able to apply anew to change its name for season 2015/2016.
Adam Lewis QC acted for the FA and Nick De Marco represented Hull City. The full Arbitral Award is available in the attached document.
