About this book

This book, written by an expert in the field, covers some of the following issues, namely

high-profile WADA cases such as that of Maria Sharapova, the Bosman ruling, decisions

by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), and footballers’ employment contracts

and transfers for enormous amounts. These issues have led to sport no longer being

confined to the back pages of traditional media such as newspapers, but increasingly

le="font-size: 14px;">finding its way onto the front pages and into new media.


Since ancient times sport has been practised but today it is a multi-billion dollar ‘industry’,

and Sports Law as a discipline in its own right is developing apace and is increasingly

being studied and practiced at all levels of interest and competency. Thereby creating

a need amongst students, lawyers, accountants, sports marketers, promoters, agents,

sans-serifsports broadcasters, sports administrators and managers for some basic and general

knowledge of the legal aspects of sport.


This introductory guide to international sports law will serve to satisfy the needs currently

not being met in present-day sports law literature, and should also be of interest

to researchers and the general reader. Although the topics covered are necessarily

sans-serif">selective, sports law being such a vast subject, they are representative of the main legal

issues facing the world of sport today. Throughout the book, the reader is referred to

articles, publications and other materials that provide further information on the various

subjects treated in the text, thus enhancing its value and usefulness. The Law is stated

as at 1 January 2017, according to the sources available at that date.


Prof. Ian S. Blackshaw is an International Sports Lawyer, a Solicitor of the Supreme Court

of England and Wales, and a Visiting Professor at several Universities, including Anglia

Ruskin University, Cambridge, United Kingdom, and The University of Pretoria, South

Africa. He is also a member of the Court of Arbitration for Sport, Lausanne, Switzerland.
