A statement issued by Quantuma following a Zoom meeting held with members of the Supporters Charter Group held on 09/03/2022
As you are aware the main barrier to moving forward with a sale of the club was the position of Middlesbrough and Wycombe. A resolution to the Middlesbrough claim has been agreed. Whilst settlement discussions have taken place with Wycombe, no agreement has yet been reached and all options are still being considered . This is not expected to hinder any sale of the club.
Crucial and confidential talks are currently ongoing with prospective purchasers and their advisors. These discussions are at a key juncture and the Joint Administrators do not wish to jeopardise the sale of the Club in any way and do not feel it would be helpful to publicly provide information that may well change during the course of these ongoing discussions. During the course of the Administration to date a number of confidential communications have been publicised, and in some instances misquoted. As a consequence, there is significant caution regarding the release of detailed information surrounding the bidding process which may have a negative overall impact if quoted out of context or inaccurately. The Joint Administrators have received a number of bids and ongoing expressions of interest. Negotiations are continuing in order to ensure a suitable bid can be accepted which satisfies the necessary criteria to fulfil the EFL’s requirements and insolvency law.
Funding is available to see the club complete the season however it is in the interests of all parties for a sale to complete as soon as possible, particularly in order to capitalise on commercial decisions ahead of next season. Ongoing trading cannot continue indefinitely without a preferred bidder in place to support the day-to-day running of the club.
The Joint Administrators are as committed as ever to achieving a sale as soon as possible and ensuring the survival and future success of Derby County Football Club. The frustrations of the fans are understood and shared. Every effort is being made to achieve a sale at the earliest opportunity. Further updates will be provided as soon as it is practicable to do so.
Important notice from DCFC regarding fans behaviour and supported by DCDSC
Derby County wishes to provide an important reminder to supporters that anti-social behaviour at matches will not be tolerated.
The club wishes to remind supporters that any form of anti-social behaviour is unacceptable and whilst these instances only represent a small section of supporters, those who behave in this way are only demonstrating a complete lack of respect for all those associated with Derby County.
The support that the club has received in the most challenging of circumstances this season is hugely appreciated, but it should be noted that future incidents could result in further ramifications for the club in the form of either fines or sanctions.
Anyone behaving offensively at a match can expect to be dealt with by the authorities and the club, who continue to work closely with supporter groups to address anti-social behaviour from individual fans and will always support prosecutions when that is the appropriate course of action to take.
Derby County will also continue to collaborate with Derbyshire Constabulary and the Safety Advisory Group to ensure security operations are robust and effective, and provide additional support when necessary.
The club’s message is very simple to those intent on causing trouble; you do not represent Derby County and, if you cannot control yourself, you are not welcome at matches.
