In addition, Centrefield is consistently recognised as a leading practice in football advising on football transactions and regulatory issues, including in respect of transfers/loans, player contracts, intermediary (agent) arrangements and disciplinary issues. We have also acted for a number of football clubs internationally, across Europe, Asia, North America and Oceania.
We have close links with a wide network of specialist sports law firms around the world, including in Spain, Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Portugal, Brazil, USA, Argentina, Japan and many others, as we are routinely involved in and co-ordinate advice on international transactions for our clients on the law in other jurisdictions.
