Sport, Safety And Participation – Annual Review 2022/23
Last year saw sports returning to a state of near normality, drawing to a close with the FIFA World Cup in Qatar taking place as the first mega sports event in the post-covid, or living-with-covid, world. Sport safety continues to be dominated by three key issues: the ongoing general development of the law as it applies to sports injuries; the evolution of the tests for establishing claims of historic sexual abuse; and the addition of further claimants to the rugby concussion litigation.
This chapter of the LawInSport Annual Review 2022/23 examines the key UK case law and potential developments affecting sports safety and participation over the past 12 months. It will also highlight emerging and ongoing themes to watch going forwards, including in particular:
Developments in the law applying to sports participants
Developments in the law applying to cases of historic sexual abuse
Looking to the future and the rugby concussion litigation
