Administration is a way to prevent a football club from going into liquidation, it also means a club can stay in existence and continues playing matches.

Clubs go into administration because they are spending more than the amount of money they are making and do not have the money to pay players or bills.

When a club goes into admin, the administrators are in charge of everything except on the pitch activities.

When a football league club enters administration they are automatically deducted ten points. In the Premier League the figure is nine points as they play fewer games.

Football has been my ultimate passion since day one. Football really started becoming a huge part of my life when I was 14, but with the Internet not being as prominent at the time, I had a hard time finding pertinent information. And this is exactly how Football-Wonderkids came about. As the website’s Founder, I’m on a mission to curate information on current youth players across the globe and make it readily available all in one place.
