Can you fix the World Cup Final? Contrasting perspectives on match fixing in football
Thursday, 1 May 2014 - London
The Board of the British Association for Sport and Law is delighted to invite you to the Grayson Debate, taking place at 6pm on Thursday 1st May 2014 at the offices of Charles Russell LLP, 5 Fleet Place, London EC4M 7RD.
This will be the 6th annual event in memory of BASL’s founding President, Edward Grayson, a pioneer of sports law who sadly passed away in 2008.
In a change of format, we will this year be showcasing a panel discussion between leading thinkers from the worlds of sport and law on the highly topical subject of match fixing in football.
We are proud to announce an exceptional line-up, featuring Adam Lewis QC, Jim Sturman QC and former England international footballer Graeme Le Saux.
In addition, current BASL President Mel Goldberg, who defended former Wimbledon goalkeeper Hans Segers in respect of match fixing allegations in the 1990s, will be giving an introductory address. The debate will be followed by drinks and a finger buffet.
We look forward to seeing you there.
