Summer of sports 2018

August 2018

After much excitement in June and July, it was France who were left holding the golden trophy aloft, with Les Bleus able to overcome Croatia to win their second FIFA World Cup.

As always, the FIFA World Cup was full of twists and turns. The holders, Germany, were knocked out at the group stage, Spain succumbed to the hosts Russia and England managed to win a game on penalties. Several players grasped their opportunity on the biggest of international stages to put themselves firmly in the shop window. Speaking of shop windows, following his success leading the Three Lions, 7 July was declared National Waistcoat Day in the UK in honour of Gareth Southgate and his sartorial choices.

Here at CMS, we were able to put aside our international allegiances to produce several insights into developments within the world of sport, and not limited to the football industry. Our articles cover a range of issues such as dealing with malpractice in sport, how technological developments will affect both the participation in, and viewing of, sport and complex image rights arrangements for sport stars. We hope you find it useful.
