EU sports law

The world of sports has had a long history of interaction with EU law. EU law is often used as a lever to change or underpin sports governing bodies’ regulations.

ATFIELD network member firms and their lawyers have used EU law in groundbreaking cases. These lawyers deal on a daily basis with the full range of issues relating to the compatibility of sports governing bodies’ regulations with EU law, the impact of EU law on sponsorship deals and the exploitation of media rights. Finally, our lawyers have specific expertise in dealing with the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.
