Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

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.

  1. You might like an article I wrote last year as a LLM (Competition Law) student at King’s College, for the student law review, regarding the application of EU competition law to the rules of sporting bodies. It’s an interesting area for sure, sport is big business and cannot feasibly escape the grasp of competition law. Link here:'s%20Just%20Not%20Cricket.pdf
