  • Structured Finance and Football Clubs: an Interim Assessment of the use of Securitisation

    Burns, Tom (2007)
    Securitisation is a financing technique that rests upon a complex legal foundation. Its purpose is to allow companies to raise low-cost finance from the capital markets. This technique has been used successfully in a range of businesses over many years, but it was only adopted by football clubs in much more recent times. Between late 1999 and 2003 there were a number of football securitisations and these raised many millions of pounds for the clubs. The technique appeared to be successful and...

It was perceived that these types of injury-causing acts were not sufficiently grave to warrant criminality and were better regulated internally or by the civil law. However, the imprisonment of amateur footballer Mark Chapman, for an injury-causing tackle, has challenged this viewpoint. This paper will explore th...

    Law and Morality in Counterstrike

    This article uses David Fraser’s work on law and cricket as a departure point. His analysis of the relationship between law, popular culture and everyday life is inspiring and contributes to a socio-legal understanding of law and morality as well as society and its cultural development in general. Cricket, no doubt, is closely connected with the British Empire, with parliamentarianism, modernity, cultural identity, heritage, fair play and the sportsmanship of 19th-century ideals and virtues; ...
