The game starts before the whistle is blown

Criminal Law can impact your sporting events

A new and specific legislation was conceived and implemented in the wake of the last edition of the FIFA World Cup and the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, with the inclusion of criminal aspects, such as ambush marketing. In addition, there are a variety of laws that regulate sports and entertainment activities that also bring criminal law to the heart of the discussions.
