Dundee to enter administration

Dundee Football Club is to enter administration.  The Division 1 club has been unable to negotiate a settlement with the tax authorities over an outstanding £365,000 bill.  The club had been hoping to make a one-off payment and benefactor Calum Melville lodged a payment of £200,000 with the club’s solicitors earlier in the week.

Scottish football is looking increasingly troubled.  In the case of Dundee it is understood that the club is losing a five figure sum every month.  Football redundancies will almost inevitably follow when the club enters into administration.

Dundee’s ground is on the opposite side of the same road to that of Scottish Premier League club Dundee United.

  1. Dundee FC..

    I believe they are tenents of Dens Park and the owner is a Director of Dundee United….That this has happened twice in 7 years is shocking and I expect the SFL to take a hard line with points deduction or relegation.Claims that Dundee are being made an example of are out of order,as Sheffield Wednesday have  been in court 3 times by HMRC
