Sean Cottrell, CEO of LawInSport, hosted a roundtable discussion with three leading sports lawyers Nick De Marco, Nick Tsatsas & Richard Berry. The roundtable included a discussion on the legal issues that arise from the contractual, regulatory and governance structures in football including:

  • The recent Telegraph sting which led to the departure of the England manager Sam Allardyce; including how would the Allardyce situation be handled in other professions?
  • The prevalence of “under the table” deals which are either in breach of the regulation or at least present a real or potential conflict of interest and/or loyalty in football?
  • How much does the current transfer system encourage some of these rouge practices?
  • What action would you like The FA, UEFA & FIFA to take to create a more transparent and robust regulatory system in football such as regulating agents and third parties?
