The Regulation of Sport in the European Union brings together a collection of essays which examine the regulatory and institutional implications which the ‘Europeanisation’ of sporting activity has brought about in the last decade. Uniquely, in addressing these issues the book adopts an inter-disciplinary approach, involving law, economics and sociology and brings together several key themes which arise from the question of whether sport is unique. The book addresses the growing argument that sporting activity and its commercial exploitation displays special properties which requires a distinct regulatory framework and governance structure that EC law and national legislation do not provide.
