“A dispute between a premier league football club and the first and second defendants, the chairman of the Football Association Premier League Ltd and the company itself, was covered by arbitration clauses in the rules of the company and the Football Association. Neither the Companies Act 2006 nor considerations of public policy prohibited the submission to arbitration of matters relating to an unfair prejudice petition under section 994 of the 2006 Act.”
