Economic benefit and the law in sport
Languages of publication
The following article is intended to analyse potential economic benefits in professional competitive sport. Professional sport is not to be perceived only from the perspective of emotions evoked by sportsmen competing in various disciplines. Currently, sport has become a great business that generates noticeable revenues and provides employment to many individuals. Hence, the scientific discipline referred to as the sports law has been receiving more and more interest as it not only tackles upon the legal status of sports federations, sportsmen or clubs but also has to deal with the issues of sports economy, sponsorship agreements in sports, the image of contestants as well as numerous other problems. Therefore it seems justifiable to commence a scientific debate on economic benefits in sport and their forms on the basis of legal regulations regarding sport.
