The author among others seeks the answer for who qualify as a professional athlete, what conditions shall be needed to perform this activity, what kind of contract is concluded by the parties to establish sports legal relationship and what are the substantial elements that should have the contract to fulfill its function. The study goes through the aforementioned questions point by point, looking at the conceptual definition, taking consideration at todays sports political amis.
