THEY TRUST US

Gianni Infantino, 
UEFA General Secretary

" The Centre de Droit et d’Economie du Sport (CDES) has been serving the world of sport and its institutions since 1978, when studies in sports management and law were still relatively unheard of. CDES was not born of opportunism but to contribute to the development of sport and everyone involved in it. It is therefore only natural that UEFA should work with CDES on different projects and host the various seminars it organises each year on European football. More recently, UEFA and CDES have forged even closer ties through the creation of the Executive Master in European Sport Governance (MESGO), an international course for sports executives that UEFA actively supports. This new international dimension is excellent for the world of sport because it enables ever more organisations to benefit from the expertise of CDES and tap into its outstanding network of former – and future – graduates.

The CDES project

The Centre for the Law and Economics of Sport (CDES) was created in November 1978 by François Alaphilippe and Jean-Pierre Karaquillo, both Associate Professors of Law, as a laboratory of the Faculty of Law and Economics of the University of Limoges. The goal was to create a tool for expertise and education purposes, specialised in the sports movement. There were two guiding principles for the CDES:

  • Innovation, based on expertise and human investment, recognised since its beginning by the sports stakeholders both in France and abroad;

  • A constant and active connection between university and sports organisations in the fields of education and research.

The CDES project has evolved over the years and three different bodies are now contributing to its development: the university laboratory, the CDES-Progesport association (created in 1980) and the law firm CDES-Conseil (which was created in 2010). These three bodies are complementary and benefit from each other’s experience and contribute to developing the CDES project.

The overall approach of the CDES is characterised by the indissoluble link between consideration of the sports sector and the forensic tools that have been developed to help this sector. 

This approach is used for three major areas of strategic activity: training courses, publications, and expertise (studies, advice, monitoring, participation in sports bodies, etc.) 

In this context, the CDES’ objectives are as follows:

  • To train professionals in the sports sector;

  • To inform and advise stakeholders in the sports sector;

  • To develop research in the law and economics of sport;

  • To participate in the management of sports bodies, especially those where the CDES’ technical input can be useful;

  • To anticipateanalyse and fully contribute to developing the sports sector.
