Sports practice and organisation is very significant to the local, national and global economy.  Loughborough University, a leading force in global sports development, draws on many disciplines such as sociology, pedagogy and psychology to motivate and enable people’s engagement with sport as part of their daily lives.

Come and listen to Dr Serhat Yilmaz as he takes us all on an exciting ride on how children should be seen as children first, before been seen as players in order for their rights to be protected. This event promises to be exciting and educative with prizes up for grabs!

Children Before Players: Children’s Rights and Football

Dr Serhat Yilmaz (LLB, LLM, PhD, FHEA) (Senior Lecturer in Sports Law)
The talk delves into a crucial question: how can we effectively protect the interests and well-being of young players in football while addressing risks to their rights and welfare? Football is one of the most popular sports in the world, but despite this, problems with children's rights such as abuse, exploitation, and trafficking still exist in the sport. The solution lies in incorporating rights into the football industry via rights-based approaches that respect and realise children's rights. Through this, football can create an environment that not only protects children's well-being but also fosters their physical, emotional, and social growth, contributing to their overall holistic development. Football can and must provide a safer and more equitable environment for children.
