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.

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.
