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.
