The article provides an overview on the international law for sporting events. It states that Olympic Games and its specific institutions can operate under its own rules which is outside the host community. Such rules regulate relationships that emerge exclusively within the context of the international sporting legal order, the Lex Sportiva. The implementation of rules of law is aimed at professional sport and offers important financial gains to all those operating in the market. The author suggests that the transnational Sports Law is aimed to emphasize the nature of sports law as a form of law.
