Continuing to build the European Model of Sport


The recent European Court of Justice’s Kolpak ruling1 gives us another opportunity to focus on the combination of public law and sporting rules in the sport law matters, particularly regarding professional sport. Each sporting situation is positioned in the spotlight of different levels of legality. Three geographical zones may be distinguished: the regional level as, for example, in Italy or Spain where Regional Sport Acts exist; the central national level; and the European level where Community law applies. What has changed since 1995 and the famous Bosman ruling2? Although Deliege and Lethonen, have confirmed the applicability of the freedom of movement of workers in sport, they also have allowed more flexibility in the application of Community law to sport. Nevertheless, with respect to fair competition, have the sport federations, in the light of their monopoly, secured their role in the future of professional sport? As professional sport includes not only sporting and economic, but also cultural and historical dimensions, a special treatment is needed.
