The Football League can confirm that it has met with representatives of Ernst and Young, the Receivers of Birmingham International Holdings Limited, the ultimate parent company of Birmingham City.

Representatives of the Club were also present at the meeting.

The Receivers made it clear that they do not believe that their appointment, in Hong Kong, should be considered as an ‘insolvency event’ under Football League regulations and have undertaken to work in a transparent manner with The Football League so as to enable the League’s Board to consider the matter at the earliest possible opportunity.

The Football League also received confirmation that no funding will be withdrawn from Birmingham City and that sufficient funds are available to ensure that the Club can complete the 2014/15 season.
