This book comes at a critical time for the future development of sports law. Sport is becoming increasingly commercialised and commodified and, presently, sports business accounts for around three per cent of world economic activity. Its regulation, however, is fragmentary and it is difficult to delineate issues of pure sport and issues of business. In several contributions, eminent sports law scholars examine the interface between sport, business and policy. They analyze how law regulates sport and sports business and demonstrate the need to redefine the frontier between 'Sporting' rules and regulations and legal regulation. It is suggested that sporting bodies and associations have a significant role to play in shaping the contours of this frontier. It is also suggested that there is sufficient clarity in EU policy, which allows sports associations to become proactive in their own re-regulation. Professional Sport in the European Union: Regulation and Re-regulation engages the debate concerning how best sport can be re-regulated in the 21st century and represents a significant contribution to the recognition of a Lex Sportiva.
