Sport and Brexit Regulatory Challenges and Legacies
This is the first book to investigate the significance of Brexit for sport, with a particular focus on the regulatory and legal challenges that it poses, and the economic and political stresses that are likely to follow in its wake.
Written by a team of leading researchers working across sport studies, legal studies and political science, and edited by an EU official with nearly two decades of experience working in EU sport policy, the book explains why regulation, and European dis-integration, matter to sport. It examines key topics including free movement, state aid and labour law, and considers the interests of key stakeholders from fans to football clubs to governing bodies.
This is an essential reference for any advanced student, researcher, policy maker, administrator or industry professional working in sport, international law, political science, or international business and management.

"The conclusion of this reviewer is unambiguous: Kornbeck and his authors have provided a remarkable collection of essays on the regulatory challenges and legacies which Brexit presents to the sport sector. The profound and stylistically attractive contributions, which are equally attractive to and accessible for a non-Anglophone readership, offer a tantalising palette of themes, the diversity of which cannot possibly be gauged from the title of the book! Once you have started browsing for fun, you simply won't put this book down again, and it will surely become a compass for answering numerous questions related to post-Brexit challenges. In my mind, there can be no doubt that it will be quoted in scholarship related to sports and sports law. It deserves to be!" – Jan F.
