Sports criminal law

Everyone knows what a red card is. The consequences of such a ban are far-reaching. An athlete is no longer allowed to practice his profession, his employer can no longer employ him. Plan A therefore also defends players and clubs in proceedings under association criminal law.

New and increasingly complicated normative requirements make the regulatory situation confusing. Plan A develops ways out of the norm thicket through compliance with sports criminal law for clubs and associations.
