Case Highlights

Financial Fair Play

UEFA fair play

UEFA’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules improve the overall financial health of European club football. Since 2013, UEFA has assessed clubs participating in European club competitions against break-even requirements, which require clubs to balance their spending with their revenues and restricts clubs from accumulating debt. Benoit Keane successfully defended UEFA from a competition complaint before the European Commission. He also acts in a case brought under EU competition law before the Belgian courts against the FFP Regulations.
