Overview of Sports Law

Sports law is the body of law governing all sports. It is essentially an umbrella term containing legal provisions related to sports. Since the field of sports is rapidly emerging with stronger competition and greater contribution to the economy, it is important to regulate it. It is a much-criticised fact that there is not a single concentrated statutory body or legislation governing and regulating sports activities. However, there are many independent bodies and sports associations for different purposes safeguarding the interests of stakeholders. They are set up to address issues of accountability, administration, and development. The Indian Olympic Association is responsible for matters relating to Olympic Games. The Board of Control for Cricket is the governing body for cricket in India. Furthermore, many international agencies such as the Anti-doping Agency are established to ensure that the intrinsic value of a game is not undermined by adopting unfair means and methods.

To practice sports law, it is important to have substantive and procedural knowledge of many aspects such as selection, discrimination persisting in the field of sports, use of performance enhancing drugs and steroids, issues related to injury etc. The best advocates in Chandigarh exhibit such knowledge and deal in cases coming under the ambit of sports law.
