The commercially lucrative aspect of sport presents regulators with the threat of breakaways by entities focused on profits, which may not be in the best interest of the sport. Simon Boyes, Director of the Centre for Sports Law at Nottingham Trent University, discusses the
threat faced by sports regulators across different sports and asks whether rather than protecting traditional regulators the law may actually be providing a further obstacle to asserting any degree of control in preventing possible breakaways.
