The case to decide the ownership of Liverpool Football Club will be heard in the High Court on Tuesday.
The court listings revealed that the case of ‘Royal Bank of Scotland PLC v Hicks & others’ will be heard at the High Court before Mr Justice Floyd at 10:30am on Tuesday.
The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), the club’s major creditors, have submitted an application to the court against co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett.
Hicks and Gillett, who bought the club in March 2007, owe RBS £240m but are blocking the £300m sale of the club to New England Sports Ventures (NESV).
The American duo oppose the sale as they say it undervalues the club.
The case on Tuesday revolves around whether chairman Martin Broughton has the authority to sell Liverpool to NESV against the wishes of Hicks and Gillett.
Broughton claims when the owners decided to put the club up for sale in April, RBS requested undertakings from them that only he could make changes to the club’s board.
Hicks, however, has denied there are such undertakings in place, insisting Broughton’s actions were illegal and therefore the sale, which was backed by the majority of the board, is invalid.
