Player with exclusive contracts

Marian Härtel


I was talking with a client of mine yesterday who hired a player with a current contract with a US Team. My client, from Europe, didn't know the player still has a contract and that this player signed an exclusivity agreement with the US team. #

An interesting fact is though, that the US team didn't countersign the agreement/addendum containing the exclusivity clause. 

This raises legal questions regarding the validity of the contract in Europe but also shows how complicated legal issue are in cases like this with three different legislation being involved.

The US team nevertheless ask my client to suspend working with the player, which seems to be yet another difficult legal situation as there are no contractual ties between my client and the US team.

Overall though it shows how important clean and professional legal documents are to grow professionally, and it also shows that we are soon reaching a situation with transfer fees and legal fights between rival teams.

Check your contracts and get legal help before it is too late!
