Swindon Town’s Response to Winding-up Petition

Swindon Town FC released a statement in relation to the winding up petition issued by HMRC:

“The Club has had a winding up petition presented against it, which has been fully paid. Receipt of monies have been confirmed and we are going through the process of having the petition set aside.

We would like to reassure everyone that there is no danger of the Club going into liquidation and this, hopefully, is the last of a series of challenges arising from the ownership battle that the Club has had to tackle.”

The statement followed the news that HMRC had issued a winding up petition against the Swindon over unpaid taxes on Monday 5 January 2015, with a High Court hearing date set for Monday 23 February.
