Nick De Marco QC and Ravi Mehta acted for the Professional Footballers Association (instructed by Mills & Reeve) in its arbitral challenge to the English Football League’s (EFL) League 1 and League 2 Player Salary Caps – the first salary caps to be introduced in European football. An independent arbitral panel has ruled that the EFL acted in breach of the Professional Football Negotiating and Consultative Committee's (PFNCC) constitution by introducing salary caps without proper consideration, consultation or agreement. As a result the Salary Caps have been immediately withdrawn.

Statements from the PFA and EFL are available here and here.
