Dr Holger Jakob from MELCHERS' Sports & Esports Practice Group has launched the sports law podcast "Liebling Bosman" together with Dr Christopher Wiencke, Fabian Reinholz and Robert Golz, LL.M.. In the podcast (in German), the four lawyers discuss legal topics related to sport with a special focus on football.
The idea came about because although there are many sports podcasts that also deal with the social phenomena surrounding sport, legal topics are often neglected. The sports law podcast is more or less the legal extension of these sports podcasts.
Previous editions have dealt, among other things, with labour law issues in connection with the Corona pandemic and the DFL hygiene concept, with the insolvency of 1. FC Kaiserslautern, with the accident on the first stage of the 2020 Tour of Poland, with the "strike" of the Mainz team around the case of Ádám Szalai , with an insight into the NFL and other American professional leagues or with the decision of the Regional Court of Munich on the secondary ticket market.
