The European Club Association (ECA) has today held its second in a series of Legal Workshops, designed to discuss the latest legal developments affecting European club football, at the Åråsen Stadion in Lillestrøm, Norway.

As legal frameworks and regulations in sport continue to develop, it is essential for football clubs to be up-to-date with legal matters at an international level. Accordingly, ECA has organised a series of workshops with the aim of educating and providing a knowledge-sharing platform for legal departments of football clubs across Europe.

This workshop is a follow-up to the successful kick-off event held last month in Romania. The programme informs participants of the legal developments at FIFA, UEFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), with specific reference to transfer & employment policies.

The programme topics were carefully selected by ECA's Legal Department based on feedback received from participating clubs, and the session enabled club representatives to bring forward any further questions they had.

In attendance were representatives from several Norwegian football clubs, including Aalesund, Haugesund, Lillestrøm, Molde FK, Odd, Rosenborg BK, Sandefjord Fotball, Stabæk, Strømsgodset, Tromsø and Vålerenga IF, as well as representatives from the Norwegian FA and Norsk Toppfotball.

Upcoming ECA Workshops will be announced at a later date.
