Turkish Sports Law in Turkey

The sports industry has recently become a huge economy with the development of technology, the increase in club supporters, broadcast, ticket, advertising revenues and the participation of sponsors. As a result of this economic growth, sports have ceased to be seen as a hobby and entertainment, and have become a professional sector where huge amounts of money are returned. As a result of the professionalization of the sports industry day by day, conflicts between clubs and athletes are increasing. As a result, the field of Sports Law is expanding day by day. In line with the needs arising from sports law, it is possible to obtain information on the subject through Sports Law Lawyer Istanbul. Sports Law Attorney is an expert lawyer in the field.

Sports law tries to resolve disputes that may arise between them within a predetermined framework by imposing certain obligations on both athletes and clubs. As the athletes have rights and obligations towards their clubs to which they are contractually bound, the clubs also have some rights and responsibilities towards the athletes. In addition, coaches who provide the link between the club and the athlete have rights and obligations. Sports Law Attorney Istanbul is a successful and expert lawyer working actively in this field. Sports Law Attorney is a loyal and reliable lawyer who can be consulted on all kinds of legal issues related to sports.

Most of the disputes that arise between Athletes, Coaches and Clubs arise from the failure of one of the parties to act in accordance with the contract between them. These disputes are resolved by the Dispute Resolution Board, the Civil Courts of First Instance and the International Court of Arbitration for Sports. Legal consultancy services for these contracts are provided by Sports Law Attorney Istanbul.


Footballer Advocacy

The Turkish Football Federation is the authorized unit with legal personality in resolving all kinds of football-related disputes in Turkey. The Arbitration Board of the Federation is authorized in the resolution of any dispute arising from the Turkish Football Federation. Footballer’s advocacy puts very important responsibilities on lawyers serving in the field of Sports Law Advocate. Athletes need a professional consultancy service during the agreements they will make with their clubs. The importance of professional legal services to be taken in the prevention of loss of rights is quite high. Athletes working with Sports Law Advocate can only concentrate on doing sports without having to think about contracts and disputes and in this way can maximize their performance. Sports Law Advocate Istanbul is working successfully on such services.

The player or his manager may not have enough experience in legal disputes. This situation may cause the player to experience some loss of rights. In order to avoid such sad situations, it is of great importance to get consultancy service from a professional Sports Law Attorney. When the athlete’s contract is controlled or regulated by a lawyer, possible disputes can be avoided before they arise, or when a dispute arises, the player’s chance to be justified will increase with the articles that the Sports Law Attorney will add to the contract. Sports Law Lawyer Istanbul is an experienced lawyer in such matters.

The legal processes that football players may encounter arise in more than one way. In some cases, in case of an attack against the personality rights of the football player, a legal consultancy is needed for this.

Another issue that will make it necessary for football players to need legal services is the penalties imposed on them by the clubs they are affiliated with. Players have the right to object to these penalties. The authority to make the objection is the Turkish Football Federation. It is very difficult for a football player who has no experience in the legal field to manage these processes. Therefore, it would be very logical for him to represent himself with a lawyer. Sports Law Attorney Istanbul is a lawyer who has done professional services. Sports Law Attorney is involved in the solution of all kinds of problems that football players may encounter.

Another issue that will make it necessary for the players to need legal services is that the clubs they are affiliated with do not pay the debts arising from the contracts to the players. Until the Constitutional Court’s annulment decision dated 18.01.2019, the Dispute Resolution Board was the definitive authority in disputes between football clubs and football players. However, after the Constitutional Court’s annulment decision dated 18.01.2019, the exclusive authority of the Dispute Resolution Board was abolished. With this annulment decision, the football player can file a lawsuit in the Civil Courts of First Instance in order to recover their receivables, if they wish, they can apply to the Dispute Resolution Board.

Football players occasionally pursue their careers internationally. If these processes are not managed correctly, loss of material and moral rights may occur for the football player. In order to prevent such situations, professional legal advice should be sought. The contracts signed by the players in a foreign language should be analyzed correctly. In addition, it is necessary to have a good command of the legal rules of the countries for the collection of receivables. It is unthinkable for a football player or his manager to be an expert on all of these issues. For this reason, the football player will definitely need legal advice. Sports Law Attorney Istanbul is a professional lawyer who provides consultancy services on sports law.
