Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

European Competition Football Championship 2012

[Note by Alfonso: That competition authorities compete to be among the world-class enforcers is something we all knew (see for instance GCR’s Ranking Enforcement Special Issue). What you probably didn’t know (and, frankly, we didn’t either) is that there is a football championship in which competition authorities also sweat out their competitive spirit. We have been asked by the organisers of the upcoming edition to help promote this event among competition authorities, and we’re glad to do it; it looks like sure fun!]

After two highly successful and memorable events hosted by the NMa and the Bundeskartellamt in 2010 and 2011, the Hungarian Competition Authority (GVH) has the pleasure to announce that the 3rd European Competition Football Championship (ECFC) will take place in Budapest this year.

The GVH is pleased to invite all European competition authorities to the 2012 ECFC in Budapest, which will be organised together with a workshop on sports and competition law.
