Simply put, sport governance is the means by which a sporting governning body runs its affairs.
Members of sports clubs have a quasi-contractual relationship with the clubs and organisations that they join.
With sporting bodies and sports clubs seeking outside funding, there is a greater need to ensure that the right governance structures are in place, and self regulation can prove problematic due to outside influences.
Best practice, being fair and transparent, and having agreed disciplinary procedures in place are now essential if legal conflict is to be avoided.
At Sports Law NI we can help you set up the correct corporate governance structure for your organisation, making sure that you are abiding by current legislation and on a sound legal footing with your constitution.
