Rather than simply provide an update or debate an aspect of an area of sports law, this conference is intended as a critical event for those immersed in the world of sport. The conference will provide the opportunity for those with an interest in sports law, governance and the business of sport, the chance to hear what the leading experts think about the important issues within sport in 2019 and beyond, as well as time to debate, discuss and expand up on the topics discussed throughout the course of the day.
We are particularly pleased to announce that the event will incorporate the release of the findings from a major two-year study, generously supported by the European Union‘s Erasmus+ Programme, into the regulation of football agents across Europe. Leading industry figures and stakeholders will debate the findings and discuss what the future holds for football agents. Attendance is essential for all those involved in football anywhere across Europe.
Topics for discussion will include:
- ‘Football Agents – how regulation differs across Europe and a practical look at the reforms’
- ‘Concussion: impact and legal responsibilities’
- ‘Sports Governing Bodies under attack: can they survive the breakaway revolution?’
- A review of the leading sports cases in 2019 from those at their centre
- Sports Finances: avoiding disaster whilst ensuring competitive balance
- Women’s Sport – what the past can teach us about its future potential
Who Should Attend
- In-house counsel
- Sports executives and administrators
- Current and former players
- Private practice lawyers
Last year’s event attracted over 200 delegates from across Europe, Japan and North America, including representatives from Premier League Football Clubs, UEFA, FIFA, the RFU, the RFL, British Cycling, the ECB, the INF and the Court of Arbitration for Sport, as well as leading agents, advisors, journalists and lawyers.
