Chetaniya Varun, Galgotias University & Abhishek Kumar Singh, Galgotias University


Sports contribute to the promotion of unity, child and youth growth, a healthy lifestyle, and active social involvement. It primarily inculcates a sense of belonging and pride in one's country. People develop a sense of loyalty as a result of sports, which is such a pure emotion that it elicits strong reactions. Everyone enjoys playing and watching sports because it is straightforward: if you achieve results, you will be given the opportunity to participate. Sports teach us the value of teamwork, culture, fidelity, and, most importantly, the importance of looking out for and caring for one another.

Law is the foundation of justice and harmony, and without it, everything will fall apart. People are protected from discrimination and oppression via rules and regulations. It is important to have a legal system in place to oversee sports so that issues such as racism, doping, and age manipulation can be avoided and controlled. Sports law aids in the protection of gender equality, the prevention of betting and gambling, the promotion of professional sports management, the resolution of antitrust and competition policy problems in sports, and the regulation of sports broadcasting rights.

Sports law is a synthesis of various laws that help to regulate sports around the world. Various organisations have been established to oversee the global governance of sports, such as-

• Cricket - International Cricket Council

• Football - Federation International Football Association

• Athletics - International Association of International Federations
