Description

Long established as the market leading textbook on sports law, this much-anticipated new edition offers a comprehensive and authoritative examination of the legal issues surrounding and governing sport internationally. Locating the legal regulation of sport within an explicit socio-economic context, this refocused edition is divided into four core parts: Governance & Sport; Commercial Regulation; Sports Workplace; and Safety in Sport.

Recent developments covered in this edition include:

  • EU competition law interaction with sport under arts. 101 and 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union;
  • the current World Anti-Doping Agency code;
  • analysis of the recent Court of Arbitration for Sport Jurisprudence;
  • reforms of the transfer system in team sports;
  • anti-discrimination provisions in sport;
  • engagement with match fixing;
  • a focus on the legal context of 2012 London Olympics.

Essential reading for students studying sports law or sports-related courses, this textbook will also prove useful to sports law practitioners and sports administrators in need of a clear companion to the field.
