November’s issue of World Sports Advocate
November's issue of World Sports Advocate - formerly World Sports Law Report - provides expert analysis and thought leadership on the key legal, regulatory and policy issues in the sporting world.
We feature two indepth articles on UEFA's Financial Fair Play Regulations. Firstly, Michele Bernasconi, Partner at Baer & Karrer AG and member of the World Sports Advocate Editorial Board, provides detailed analysis of the recent ruling by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in re Galatasary v. UEFA, CAS 2016/A/4492. Michele assesses the rationale of the CAS Panel that led to the finding that UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules are in line with EU law.
Tom Serby, Senior Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University, then shares his views on whether UEFA's Financial Fair Play Regulations are contrary to Europe's competition laws. Tom provides a high level overview of the issues, touching only briefly on the CAS ruling in Galatasary, as well as assessing other settled case law, and a close assessment of the break-even rule contained within the Regulations.
Following the fantastic set of discussions at Player Contracts 2016 last month, which was organised by World Sports Advocate, November's issue features a set of articles written by speakers in reaction to the conference. One such article is written by Matthew Bennett, Partner at Centrefield LLP, who was a member of the Panel of experts that discussed whether the current transfer system requires reform. Matthew's article sheds light on the discussion and provides his views on FIFPro's complaint to the European Commission.
Another highlight of November's issue is an analysis of the relaxation of Article 40 of the Olympic Charter, in light of the Rio Olympic Games, and whether things have been improved from the athletes' perspective as a result of the relaxed restrictions. Mike Morgan and Donna Bartley of Morgan Sports Law LLP, provide a lively article on the impact on the Rio Olympics and provide their criticisms.
