Sports Law Contracts

Arbitration is an activity, which aims at resolving the problem in accordance with the agreements entered into by the parties. The word “arbitration,” which appears as a private law concept, is a concept that has started to be applied in the scope of administrative law. Any disputes related to the sports law are resolved through the Dispute Resolution Board, the Civil Courts of First Instance and the International Sports Arbitration Court. It would not be wrong to talk about a combined law branch when the sports law is required to be defined. The most important source in terms of sports law includes the written legal rules.

Branches of the Sports Law

Sports appear as the practices carried out as a collective activity with the existence of real and judicial persons. The athletes represent real persons in this group. The athletes are people, who work as amateurs or professionals. In respect to the athletes, each federation may determine its own legal status. All sports other than football are regulated by the General Directorate of Sports. The Federations can be authorized by a regulation arranged by this institution.

Football Player Attorney

The Turkish Football Federation is an institution, which is subject to special legal provisions. Its most important feature is that it has a legal entity and is an authorized unit in resolving any disputes related to football. The Arbitration Board is authorized to settle any disputes arisen in connection with the Turkish Football Federation. The fact that the Arbitration Board is authorized in solving any problems related to football eliminates the need for another judicial body. The football player attorney imposes very important responsibilities on the attorneys, who serve in the field of Sports Law Attorney. The athletes need a professional consultancy service during their agreements with their clubs. Importance of the professional attorney services to be received in preventing any loss of rights is quite high. The Istanbul Sports Law Attorney caries out the successful works on such services.

Since the football player or manager, who represents him, has not a sufficient experience or has not a knowledge of the legal procedure, this causes many losses of rights. It is possible to prevent such situations with the legal advice service. When the contract to be entered into by the athlete is controlled or regulated by an attorney, more efficient results may be achieved.

In some cases, the football players may experience any troublesome processes.

Another matter that will make it necessary for football players to need legal services includes the penalties imposed on them by their clubs. The football players have the right to object to these penalties. The authority that any objections will be referred to is the Turkish Football Federation. Since it will be difficult for a football player having no experience in the legal field to manage these processes, he will need to be represented by a professional attorney.

The Sports Law Attorney is involved in solution of such problems that the football players are likely to encounter through his experiences.

Another issue that will necessitate the need for attorneys for the football players is that the clubs that they are affiliated with do not pay their debts to the football players. The Conflict Resolution Board had the exclusive authority to settle the disputes between football clubs and players until the cancellation decision dated of 18.01.2019 of the Constitutional Court. However, pursuant to the cancellation decision dated of 18.01.2019 of the Constitutional Court, it was decided that the Conflict Resolution Board was abolished and had discretionary power. With this annulment decision, the Civil Courts of First Instance are authorized for the claims of the players. If the power of the Dispute Resolution Board is not accepted, a lawsuit must be filed at the Civil Courts of First Instance.

The Football players sometimes continue their careers in the international arena. These processes also need to be managed correctly. Otherwise, the football players may incur any loss of material and moral rights. The way to avoid such situations is to seek a professional legal advice. Since the contracts signed by the football players will be in a foreign language, such documents must be analyzed correctly.
