Football, finance, and the law


Logos organisateurs

are jointly organising a seminar about the latest legal and financial developments in football. 

The seminar will take place on 26 and 27 April 2019.

This seminar offers a multidisciplinary approach. With the support of renowned experts, it discusses the latest legal and commercial developments in football.

The legal aspects covered during the seminar include recent developments related to TPO and Financial FairPlay, as well as future changements to the transfer system and competition law issues. The commercial aspects include, among others, issues and models related to multiple ownership and commercialisation for football players

The event brings together several speakers who will expose their own views on ‘hot’ topics:
