This book provides an analysis, supported by substantial primary source materials of a significant issue affecting the sports and leisure industry and rooted in contract and competition law. The judgment of the European Court of Justice on December 15, 1995 settled the European dimension of a fierce legal battle, waged by Jean Marc Bosman, a Belgian professional footballer to secure his freedom of labour.

The landmark decision will have extended ramifications and will be of international interest to sports lawyers and of practical interest to contract and competition practitioners.
