Introduction to Sports Law in South Africa

Sport is an integral part of any society and has been for thousands of years. Events and occurrences that impact on society must inevitably have an impact on the sport practised within that community. These influences begin with the individual and the family, extend further to religious groups and beyond that to economical, legal and political influences. These influences also range from the local environment to the national level and beyond to the transnational and international levels. One thing is certain: Sport does not exist in isolation. The result is that sport has from the earliest times attracted the attention of lawmakers.
