The new FIFA regulations on working with intermediaries will be implemented on 1 April 2015 and this seminar brings together a number of key experts to discuss both the impact of the new regulations on the player market and the ramifications for existing licensed players’ agents and other stakeholders.

More broadly the seminar aims to engage with a wider academic and sport community, and will be of relevance to the sports industry, policy makers, academia and beyond.

The seminar will be comprised of five presentations, a discussion and a question and answer session:
