The Act I of 2004 on the Sport (Sports Act) has been amended!
As a member of the SPORTJUS Hungarian Association of the Sport Law and as a Sports Lawyer, I am committed to inform every single athlete about the recent past amendment of the Sports Act, based on the information of the SPORTJUS. The Hungarian Assembly submitted the government’s bill No. T/3371. on 10th December 2018. which is amended the Act I of 2004 on the Sport (Sports Act).
The government’s bill has already been submitted and published since more than 4 months, but I could not present it in the recent past period because of the temporary out of service of my website and its following renovation. If someone was not informed about the December amendment of the Sports Act, it can be viewed at down below of my article in PDF format.
The amended Sports Act contains some new interesting legal institutions. I will list some of them for instance: the new sports academic system, the registered leisure athletes. Next to the aforementioned legal institutions, new rules have also been introduced. Such a new rules are for instance: the rules of the data processing of the athletes, the State aid for TAO (Corporation Tax) and the State aid for the spectacle (sight) team sport, State aid for Sport, Olympic life annuity, the provisions of the security of the events for Sports, the organizer of the Sports events, the data for the system of the sports information, the rules related to the annuity for the trainers and the amended rules and its supplements for the anti-doping, etc.
It is very important for the sport experts, especially to the sports organizers and the professional leaders the interpretation about these new rules and provisions of the Sports Act, because they are necessary to their everyday work. In case of any further questions, they can ask for help from a sports lawyer expert.
