- PublicationAccès libreGovernance Models Across Football Leagues and Clubs(Neuchâtel: Centre International d’Etude du Sport (CIES), 2016)
;Building on its first governance study about national associations and leagues (Boillat & Poli, 2014), CIES has published a second book that analyses the league-club relationship and issues around internal club governance. This research project, started in late 2014 and now published in the wake of ongoing FIFA governance reforms, studies the variety of models that exist at both league and club level. In this vein, the authors draw on core areas of club licensing as a basis for an exploratory global comparative analysis of a sample of eighteen leagues and one hundred and forty-one clubs spanning all six confederations. Covered in the book are topics including ownership requirements, political representation and decision-making, financial rights and obligations, players’ status, infrastructure, promotion/relegation and the disciplinary process. The authors outline the limits of where league responsibilities end and club ones begin. At the club level, the study explores the questions of legal form, political representation and management, administrative structure and the role of supporters and links with the community. The authors highlight the variety of league-club relationships and internal club governance models across the globe. In general, the book argues that clubs have a strong voice in the management and governance of their leagues. However, the club-league relationships are far from uniform around the world and cannot be categorized as simply either ‘horizontal’ or ‘vertical’. Clubs themselves have diverse internal structures, even if there are some common practices across continents. This book serves as a first step towards a blueprint for possible global benchmarking across leagues and clubs and argues for the necessity of ongoing empirical analysis of professional football.

- PublicationAccès libreGovernance relationships in football between management and labour(Neuchâtel: Centre International d’Etude du Sport (CIES), 2017)
;Building on the two prior CIES governance studies, this is the third FIFA-mandated research analysing governance relationships in football. This book focuses on those between football’s employers (clubs, leagues and even NAs) and its labour force. Based on a sample of forty countries across all six confederations and questionnaires from players’ associations, leagues and national associations, this research surveys and compares the diverse ‘management-labour’ approaches and scenarios in both men and women’s professional football worldwide. The authors place a special focus on players’ associations and highlight the variety of structures found world-wide. The findings here contribute to a better understanding of the systems, models and relationships in place around the globe when it comes to ‘management’ and ‘labour’. This book explores the representation of players within decision-making structures at club, league and national association level as well as the regulatory contexts and negotiation instruments linking players and management - such as collaborative agreements/MoUs, CBAs, minimum contract requirements and dispute resolution. In addition, this study provides a first ever global exploration of some of the inner workings of players’ associations and an overview of the key issues in professional football from the player’s perspective. The final chapter offers several models and frameworks illustrating the governance relationships between players and management. All three authors work at the International Centre for Sport Studies (CIES). Kevin Tallec Marston earned his PhD in history and works as research fellow and academic projects manager. Camille Boillat has a masters in geography and works as a scientific collaborator. Fernando Roitman has masters in economics and sport management and works as a project manager.
