Premier League Commission

Case Summary  |  Judgment  |   8 August 2017

 

A number of members of chambers regularly sit as arbitrators. Decisions of arbitral panels are rarely made public but an exception was the recent decision of a Commission, established pursuant to the rules of the Premier League, which has attracted interest among football clubs and fans concerning the rules requiring clubs to offer concessionary prices to juniors and seniors. Daniel Alexander QC sat on the Premier League panel in July 2017 considering Hull City's approach and its decision was published in August. It will be of interest to those concerned with the approach to interpretation of disciplinary rules concerning the commercial management of football.
