Area of Focus

Rules & Regulations

A sport’s regulatory framework is fundamental to its effective governance. The Northridge team has a wealth of experience in this area and has drafted the Rules and Regulations that govern many of our most popular sports.

We work closely with domestic and international governing bodies to update, rewrite or, in the case of new competitions and leagues, draft an entirely new regulatory framework.

We engage with stakeholders to ensure changes are implemented effectively and our team is expert in defending Rules and Regulations from challenge, having been involved in some of the most significant domestic and European cases of the last decade.

"The FA has had a long-standing relationship with the Northridge team. Their advice is commercial, strategic but above all the team knows The FA and its workings so well that the advice is always ideally bespoke to The FA."
