The forthcoming Commission decision in ISU case is expected to leave an important precedent on alternative ways to organise those European sports that are subject to pyramid structure. This structure typically confers the monopolistic position to sports governing bodies and enables the conflation of their regulatory and commercial functions resulting in potential foreclosure of the organisational market. The legality of clauses in governing bodies’ rulebooks that make it impossible in practice to stage a rival competition or organise an alternative league are at the heart of the impending ISU decision. This chapter critically analyses the EU competition law and jurisprudence applicable to the legal issues posed by such clauses, including ISU, Meca-Medina, DLG, MOTO, FIA/Formula One, Euroleague Basketball v. FIBA and FIBA Europe and FIBA v Euroleague Commercial Assets.
