The future of football contracts

Our legal expert in labor law, Matteo Amici, inquires the validity of the contracts of engagement for professional soccer players in an article published by the magazine CF – Calcio e Finanza.

Our lawyer analyzes the impact of the health emergency and the related measures for the extension of the deadlines for sports work relationships, as most of the sports clubs requested the extension of the duration of the contracts of engagement of the players beyond the already expected deadline of the 30th of June 2020.

However, our professional underlines that the deadline can only be extended by agreement of the parties, thus leaving, at least formally, the possibility for the player to accept or reject this extension introduced with an authoritative measure.
