Competition Law and Sports: Conference in Budapest

with 2 comments

This afternoon I will be travelling to Budapest to participate at a conference on “Olympics – Competition – Sports – Law: Competition and sports law issues of today’s sport”.   The conference´s program is available here,

My presentation will deal with the competition law implications of the rules establishing the obligation for clubs to release players for international competitions. In essence, I will focus on the Oulmers and Asobal cases, that we already briefly discussed here  on a previous post.

A very impressive line-up of speakers will be covering many other issues related to the application of competition law to the sports sector. If any of you is interested in this topic, I have been told that the discussions will be broadcasted online via the web page of the Hungarian Olympic Committee.

Thanks to Ádám Remetei-Filep and to Pal Szilágyi for their invitation.
