The regulation of private communications in football

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (journal)


Examines three cases in which the Football Association (FA) considered whether "private communications" breached rule E3 of its Handbook. Highlights that in two cases, involving email sent between the Premier League Chief Executive and a friend and text messages exchanged by two former employees of a football club, the FA found no breach because those involved had a legitimate expectation of privacy, whilst in the third it held there had been a breach because the messages in questions were exchanged between persons with no prior relationship.
