Modern sport is now big business and ranks high among the leading forms of entertainment. This has brought with it an increase in competing interests in sport. The socio-economic impact of sport has also attracted attention from national governments and other regulators.

Gone are the days of sport being left to its own devices. Therefore, there is an increase in regulation of sport by national governments, both directly and indirectly. Sport Governing Bodies and International Federations have also been increasing regulation to preserve the integrity of sport and protect their commercial interests.
