What Is Considered a Breach of Contract?

Like all contracts, sports contracts are legally binding agreements between multiple parties. If one or more parties fail to adhere to any of the terms or conditions of the contract without a legitimate reason, the contract has been breached.

Some examples of possible breaches of contract in sports law include:

  • Failure to play or perform
  • Failure to achieve required results
  • Breaches of contract clauses
  • Interference with other contracts
  • Failure to pay bonuses
  • Unpaid earnings
  • Wrongful termination

Sports contract disputes may also involve a variety of other issues, such as failure to disclose information, employment or labor law violations, fraud, and more. At Potts Law Firm, our sports contract attorneys understand the many nuances involved in these cases and have a long, proven track record of success in handling complex sports law matters.
