They are alleged to have taken place between January 2015 and January 2018. Albion revealed they themselves reported "historical administrative errors" and have co-operated fully with the FA throughout.
What is the charge?
The section under which they have been charged is in regard to concealing or misrepresenting "the reality and/or substance of any matters in relation to a transaction."
The charges relate to alleged breaches of regulation A3 which states: “A club, player, intermediary or other participant must not so arrange matters as to conceal or misrepresent the reality and/or substance of any matters in relation to a transaction.”
What will happen?
It is likely the club will receive a fine. Brighton were fined £90,000 by the FA in 2015 after admitting a breach of regulations involving their purchase of defender Dale Stephens in 2014. They have been given until August 17 to respond to the FA charge.
What Brighton said
A statement of their website read: "The club is aware of a statement by the FA of today's date relating to a charge against the club for breaches of the Regulations on Working with Intermediaries between 2015 and 2018.
"Following an internal review in 2019, Brighton & Hove Albion identified and self-reported to the FA a limited number of historical administrative errors relating to the processing of paperwork for intermediaries between 2015 and 2018.
"The club has openly co-operated with The FA throughout since initially raising the issue with them, and will continue to do so.
"No further comment will be made at this time."
