September’s issue of World Sports Law Report!

With the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio past the finish line, despite the sporting prowess to be celebrated, the sporting community continues to feel the effects of the McLaren Report and the ensuing controversy surrounding Russia’s participation in the Games and the serious questions it poses about the global fight against doping.

September’s edition of World Sports Law Report features an update on the anti-doping reforms proposed by National Anti-Doping Organisations (‘NADOs’). In addition to this we feature an opinion piece by Russian law firm Legal Sport on the McLaren Report, in which Mikhail Prokopets and Darina Nikitina, share their views on why they believe that the decision made by the International Olympic Committee's Executive Board was the wrong one - unfairly depriving athletes of the opportunity to compete at Rio.

Fraser Reid and Daniel Alfreds then look closely at sponsorship of the Paralympic Games and how this compares to that of the Olympics. Fraser and Daniel assess the International Paralympic Committee's sponsorship programme in detail and the strategic goals for 2015-18, as well as suggesting possible changes that could see sponsorship of the Paralympics become more effective. 

Also in the issue, detailed analysis is provided on Article 12bis of the FIFA regulations on overdue payables, Paolo Lombardi analyses the jurisprudence 18 months on and what this can tell us about the practical application of this provision; and an examination of a recent court ruling relating to Mediaset's request for a blanket blocking order to combat the unauthorised streaming of live sports online, written by Pierfilippo Capello, Head of Sports Law and Andrea Bozza, Partner at GEA Studio Legale Associato.
