September's issue of World Sports Advocate

September's issue of World Sports Advocate provides expert analysis and thought leadership on the key legal, regulatory and policy issues impacting sports business.

This month's issue focuses on a range of developments relevant to the sporting world, including digital broadcasting rights, UK image rights issues, sports betting in the US, and the contractual situation for supporters purchasing away tickets for football matches.

Highlights of the latest issue include an indepth analysis by Ross Sylvester, Head of Sport at Wiggin LLP, of the recent landmark deal between the ATP and Amazon which, from 2019, makes Amazon Prime Video the home of practically all elite men’s tennis in the UK outside of the four grand slam tournaments, and discusses the changing viewing habits in relation to audiovisual sports content.

Elsewhere in the issue, Matteo Di Francesco, Managing Associate at Orrick, dissects the Ariosa v. Club Olympia case of 2015 and considers its relevance to scenarios in which clubs try to use their position to demand action of players that is often impossible to comply with, or seek compensation from players, claiming financial, marketing, sporting and/or moral damages as a result of the player’s action.
