Television: UK review of listed events reserved for free-to-air TV

The UK government is considering changing legislation that preserves certain sporting events for free-to-air television, initiating a review of the current category A and B events in December 2008. Alex Haffner and Stephen Ridgway, Solicitors in the sports group at Denton Wilde Sapte LLP, examine how certain events can be protected for free-to-air TV under European law, the progress of the review and arguments for and against the listing of sporting events, as well as challenges to the UK's listing of certain events from FIFA and UEFA.

The full version of this article appears in the September edition of World Sports Law Report.
