Course Overview

We are looking for individuals who are aiming high and who are passionate about this industry and the way in which it links with law.

Football is regulated by a complex pattern of law and regulation. The relationship between these two systems is not always clear and this can lead to confusion amongst those who work within the football industry. Football executives not only need to operate in conformity with the regulations established by the competent football authorities, but they must also ensure compliance with the law of the land. This complexity is increasing with media rights and merchandise being sold on a global basis and the introduction of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations.

Course Details
