Abstract

Sport is big business accounting for more than 3 per cent of world trade and 1 per cent of the combined GNP of the 15 member states of the European Union (EU). In the EU alone, some 2 million jobs directly and indirectly related to sport have been created. And in the UK, annual consumer spending on sport has reached a staggering £12 billion. It is not surprising, therefore, with so much money at stake that sports disputes are also on the increase. For example, in the UK some 19 million sports injuries occur each year costing around £500 million in treatment and absence from work. But sports disputes are not confined to personal injuries. They cover a wide range of claims, not least commercial ones relating to, inter alia, sports sponsorship, endorsement, licensing, merchandising, image rights and broadcasting arrangements – a rich seam for sports lawyers to work!
