This book accounts for over 25 of the most influential cases in international sports law, as written by some of the leading authorities in the area. Authors from Europe, the United States, Australia, South Africa, Canada and New Zealand trace the evolution of this emerging discipline of law through an analysis of individual cases, as discussed under a number of key debates and themes in contemporary sports law, including: the “public” nature of legal disputes in sport; player employment mobility litigation; doping and the spirit of sport; TV rights holding proceedings; and enduring themes in sports law such as on-field violence, spectator safety, animal welfare and gender equality. Valuable for sports law academics, arbitrators and practitioners, sports administrators and governing bodies, but also for students (postgraduate and undergraduate) and all those with an interest in international sports law.
