Key sports law cases and developments of 2020 – South America
As we come to the end of a turbulent and challenging year, we wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on what we think have been some of the key sports law issues of 2020.

We hope this proves useful not only in identifying specific cases and issues, but also in detecting broader global themes when read in conjunction with the contributions from other jurisdictions.
