The European Commission has adopted a White Paper on Sport which is its first major initiative in this field. The White Paper sets out the European Union’s plans relating to the economic and societal aspects of sport. The White Paper includes proposals on the fight against doping, the regulation of professional players’ agents and the encouragement of greater social dialogue. The Commission has also published a paper on the legal analysis of sport under EU law. While the specific characteristics of sport will be taken into account in the assessment of the economic aspects of sport under EU law (e.g. competition law), the Commission states that a general exemption will not be granted.
