The de-amateurisation of sport at the turn of the twentieth century, the advancement of medicine, the reorientation of governments towards the use of sport for particular national and international policy outcomes and the commercialisation of sport have all revolutionised sport. Established legal principles deriving from, inter alia, criminal law, the law of contract and competition law have gradually impinged upon the operation of sport to the point where the sport industry is today regulated by a complex pattern of sport-specific legislation. Issues such as public order and sport, corruption in sport, drugs and sport, conduct in sport and wider issues relating to intellectual property, commercialisation of sports facilities and taxation are common features of the Maltese legislative landscape.
