Football Law Magazine ‘On the Ball’ 2012 Edition

In this issue, we gaze again into the complex world of football and the law. We delve into subjects such as the Premier League broadcasting deal, Financial Fair Play and the Football Creditors Rule.

On the Ball is produced in conjunction with Football Aid, a sports charity organisation, which enables football supporters to ‘Live the Dream’ and bid online at Footballaid.com to play on the hallowed turf of their cherished team.

On the Ball aims to give the reader a good understanding of the core legal issues in the football industry. I hope you find the newsletter both useful and interesting.
