Rochdale Association Football Club has called an Extraordinary General Meeting for 30th June 2022 to propose updates to its Articles of Association, in line with amended EFL rules.
At the EFL Annual General Meeting on 10th June 2022, it was confirmed that Clubs are now required to include a Mandatory Article within their Articles of Association which states that the Directors of the Club may refuse to register the transfer of any share where:
- i) the EFL has not confirmed its consent to the acquisition of Control;
- ii) the EFL has not confirmed that that such Person is not liable to be disqualified;
iii) if registering the transfer of any share would cause the Club to breach any other equivalent rule or regulation of another body such as the Premier League or the Football Association.
The Board of Directors are fully supportive of proposals by the EFL and therefore strongly recommend that all shareholders vote in favour of these special resolutions when they are presented to the meeting on Thursday 30th June 2022.
Simon Gauge, Rochdale AFC Chairman commented:
“As a member Club of the EFL, we are duty bound to comply with all EFL rules. Our strong recommendation to all shareholders is that they vote in favour of these special resolutions required by the EFL at the Extraordinary General Meeting to be held on Thursday 30th June 2022.”
