R. Streinz is dedicated to the further European law in the article “The dealings of the European Council with sport”

In an article in the journal Sport and Law “The dealings of the European Council with sport” R. Streinz, Munich, is dedicated to the further European law, which applies not only for the 28 member countries for the European Union (EU), but for the 47 contracted countries of the agreed right under European law, this concerns important areas such as, for example: the fight against doping, spectators and manipulation of sports competitions. For practical reasons, Streinzgives examples: the Bosman ruling, according to which UEFA and FIFA were unable to pursue their 6 + 5 rule plans, the MECA Medina ruling for the World Swimming Association, and finally the loyalty clause for the international skating union (ISU) in complaints is the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) responsible. In the case of “Pechstein” a procedure could be expected. Mr Streinzreferred to the issues addressed by the European Council, in particular the resolutions and recommendations on sport, as well as the regular meetings of EU ‘sports ministers’. At the same time, there are already international agreements on sport: The European Anti-Doping Convention (as early as 1989) and the European Convention on Violence and Misbehavior of Spectators at Sporting Events; In these, the details are agreed on how to better control any risks from fan groups. Also, the manipulation of sports competitions has been decided in an agreement, at least as an approach. Furthermore, Streinzbriefly discusses the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) focusing on the case Ostendorf / Germany (NVwZ 2014, 43-49), the case Hentschel and Start (EuGRZ 2018, 142-154), as well as the complaints by Claudia Pechstein v. Switzerland based on the decisions of the Swiss Federal Supreme Court (EuGRZ 2013, 643-644).
Finally,Streinzpoints to the co-operation of the European Council with the sports associations, most recently the leaders of FIFA and the European Council have declarations of intent to restore cooperation. However, whether this can improve a deficient internal control of FIFA, remains doubtful.
