Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has accepted a Football Association misconduct charge following comments that he made about Chinese and Jewish people.
The 78-year-old made the controversial comments last month during an interview with a national newspaper.
Whelan was given until December 5 to respond to the charge, though he was given an extension to this deadline after contacting the FA.
The Bradford-born businessman is understood to have requested a non-personal hearing.
Whelan, who bought Wigan back in 1995, recently claimed that he would quit the club if he is found guilty by the FA.
