Levelling the playing field durch staatliche Beihilfen bei differierender Unternehmensmobilität


  • Steinrücken, Torsten

Fair Play seems to have constitutional importance in both spheres: At the playground and within the institutional framework which sets the premises sport competition is subjected to. The recent initiative of the Italian government named Salva-Calcio(Save the football) violates European standards of fairness of competition. This article reveals the state aid character of Salva-Calcio. It is furthermore shown that the specialty of Salva-Calcio, imposing a tax cut for national Clubs, points towards a more general problem of the European state aid control: Any policy measure concerning the national tax system fulfils principally the criteria set by article 87/I Treaty stablishing the EU.
