Derek Hegarty, Catherine O’Flynn and Paddy Murphy joined Rob Hartnett of Sport for Business for a special live webinar on ‘Sport, Sponsorship and COVID-19 from a legal perspective’ on Tuesday 7 April.
Click on the video above to watch the panel discuss at a wide range of issues from the meaning and implications of Force Majeure through to the importance of maintaining good dialogue between parties and even some precedent that exists in a similar space from the African Nations Cup during the Ebola outbreak.
They also looked at some of the employment issues that have arisen and how they can be seen through a universal lens but also one more closely focused on the business of sport.
It was useful and important for all those who joined to gain insight into what might yet come to pass depending on the length of the disruption to normal sporting service and the economic impact that a longer enforced absence could yet produce.
