The important theme “What is Sports Law?” was the topic of the international Conference on “The Concept of Lex Sportiva Revisited”, which took place in Jakarta in late 2010. Academics and practitioners are still in debate to agree on this concept as is evident in this book. This book not only contains the worked out contributions of this Conference, but also other related chapters on the subject. It produces a reassessment of the content of Sports Law and its terminology keeping a close eye on the current literature. The book appears in the ASSER International Sports Law Series, under the editorship of Prof. Dr. Robert Siekmann, Dr. Janwillem Soek and Marco van der Harst LL.M.

The book is designed to cover the historical development of sports law and addresses the fundamental issues of this field of law, whereas at the same time it analyses some of the most important contemporary legal issues of the field. The book includes 6 Parts. 1. Part I bears the title "Theoretical Foundation of Sports Law." This Part analyses sports law as a special branch of academic study and raises the question what is sports law, whereby the issues addressed are the principles of sports law, its origin, process, grounds, aetiology, legitimacy, meaning, nature, structure, substance, character and system. Effort is made to lay down systematic foundations for sports law as a special branch of knowledge. Lastly, reference is made to the policy at EU level on sport. 2. Part II includes a "Sports Law Theory." In this Part, sports rules as rules of law are = explored and law is placed in theoretical terms within the context of sports rules. In that way, the legal aspects of physical and sporting activity are examined. This is followed by a discussion on the emergence and establishment of the international sports legal order, as well as on its relation with the traditional legal orders. 3. Part III addresses some important contemporary legal issues affecting the organisation and regulation of sport activities. They are divided into six major categories: Ethics in Sport (sporting spirit and fair play), Doping in Sport, Choregia - Sponsoring, Broadcasting of Sport Games, Human Rights of Minor Athletes and Betting. 4. Part IV covers the Law of the Olympic Games (Lex Olympica). It includes not only the historical development of the Games and its regulation starting from ancient Greece, but also the current regulations and legal status of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), as well as issues that rise from the participation of athletes in the Olympic Games. 5. Part V analyses the sporting jurisdictional order and its fundamental principles (fair trial), focusing on the international sporting jurisdictional system and the role of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). 6. Finally, Part VI includes the basic elements of the Greek Sports Law, analysing the state law and federations' regulations on Amateur and Professional Sport, Sport Club and Sport Federation, Sports criminal law (Penalties and criminal sanctions), Labour Law in Sport (Providing and offering sports services).

Principles & Practice in EU Sports Law provides an overview of EU Sports Law. In particular it assesses sporting bodies' claims for legal autonomy from the 'ordinary law' of states and international organisations. Sporting bodies insist on using their expertise to create a set of globally applicable rules which should not be deviated from irrespective of the territory on which they are applied. The application of the lex sportiva, which refers to the conventions that define a sport's operation, is analysed, as well as how this is used in claims for sporting autonomy. The lex sportiva may generate conflicts with a state or international institution such as the European Union, and the motives behind sporting bodies' claims in favour of the lex sportiva's autonomy may be motivated by concern to uphold its integrity or to preserve commercial gain. Stephen Weatherill's text underlines the tense relationship between lex sportiva and national and regional jurisdictions which is exemplified with specific focus on the EU. The development of EU sports law and its controversies are detailed, reinforced by the example of relevant legal principles in the context of the practice of sports law. The intellectual heart of the text endeavours to make a normative assessment of the strength of claims in favour of sporting autonomy, and the comparison between different jurisdictions and sports is evident. Furthermore the enduring dilemma facing sports lawyers running throughout the text is whether sport should be regarded as special, and in turn how (far) its special character should be granted legal recognition.

Fragmentation and inconsistency in legal outcomes often result. This innovative collection of essays by leading scholars of sports law addresses a gap in the literature. It advances understanding of how different legal systems respond to common issues and offers insights into the developing international system of sports law. Researchers will find this book of inescapable assistance and interest. Hayden Opie, Melbourne Law School, Australia Nafziger and Ross have provided an enormously useful collection of incisive and integrating essays that cover the gamut of important issues in the emerging field of international sport law. Andrew Zimbalist, Smith College, US This Handbook presents a comprehensive collection of essays by leading scholars and practitioners in the burgeoning field of international sports law. The authors address significant legal issues on two gradually converging tracks: the mainstream institutional framework of the law, primarily the International Olympic Committee, international sports federations, regional and national sports authority, and the Court of Arbitration for Sport; and the commercial sports industry. Topics include the institutional structure; fundamental issues, legal principles and decisions within those institutions; mediation, arbitration and litigation of disputes; doping, gambling and the expanding use of technology in competition; athlete eligibility requirements; discrimination; and protection of athletes. The book also covers a broad range of commercial issues related to competition law and labor markets; media, image, and intellectual property rights; event sponsorships; and players' agents. Comparative analyses of young sports models and practices in North America, Europe and elsewhere supplement the general theme of international sports law.

Senior executives and other professionals in the sports industry will also find much to interest them in this well-documented Handbook.

The book is an introduction to sports law, in particular International (worldwide) and European (EU) sports law. The chapters are all put in the perspective of the innovative sports law doctrine that is developed and presented in the opening chapter on what sports law is. After a general coverage of the core concept of “sport specificity” (that is whether private sporting rules and regulations can be justified notwithstanding they are not in conformity with public law), the book covers the following specific main themes of International and European Sports Law (capita selecta): comparative sports law; competition law and sport; the collective selling of TV rights; sports betting; Social Dialogue in sport; sport and nationality; professional football transfer rules; anti-doping law in sport; transnational football hooliganism in Europe; international sports boycotts. In this book association football (“soccer”) is the sport that is by far most on the agenda. It is the largest sport in the world and most popular all over the globe. The elite football in Europe is a day-to-day commercialized and professionalized industry, which makes it a perfect subject of study from an EU Law perspective.

Recent developments that have broken new ground are also included as featured cases and/or the subject of new problems. For example: • The U.S. Supreme Court's decision in American Needle, Inc. v. Nat'l Football League, earned its way into the Seventh Edition as a featured case. • The O'Bannon v. NCAA line of pending cases is addressed as a problem in both the antitrust materials and the intellectual property materials; • The emergence of a body of international sports law -- a "lex sportiva" -- gains coverage in this new edition through the addition of new problems and recently decided CAS cases; and • The class action lawsuit, Brady v. NFL, filed in April 2011, challenging various NFL player restraints and many of the questions this case raises are noted in Chapter 6.
