Judgment of the Court of Justice, Bosman, Case C-415/93 (15 December 1995)

This judgment, which has had significant repercussions on the way in which sport is organised in the European Union, relates essentially to the free movement of workers, in this case professional football players. The Court considers that Article 48 (now Article 39) of the EC Treaty precludes the application of the rules laid down by sporting associations with regard to transfers of professional players and to nationality clauses.
