Спортивные лиги в России и за рубежом: признаки и особенности правового регулирования
The author examines sports leagues established under foreign legislation (North American and European) and sports leagues established under Russian legislation. The diversity of sports leagues is the reason for the formation of different approaches to the organization and regulation of their activities. Despite this, the author identifies a list of features that are common to all the organizations under consideration. The study emphasizes that leagues are a product of market relations, so they should be given more freedom. Only if this condition is met, the idea of sports leagues will be fully implemented in Russia.
