Impact of European Competition Law on Joint Selling of Football Rights

A seminar in Room 5,
Gordon Square Building,
Birkbeck,
University of London,
London WC1E 7HX

6 – 8pm, Monday 28th April 2003

Given by:

Dr. Peter Crowther, Senior Competition Lawyer, LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene and MacRae

Synopsis:

Individual EU countries presently take quite different approaches towards the sale of broadcasting rights for football, with the result that the amount of football shown on TV varies from country to country. Against this background, the European Commission has in recent years taken an increasing interest in how national and international football rights are sold. Peter will address this trend and consider some of the recent European Commission cases. More speculatively, he will also review the current Commission investigation into the sale of Premier League rights.
