by Mills & Reeve

This project, created by the sports law team at Mills & Reeve, will chronicle the careers of two fictional football characters both on and off the pitch, starting with a young Brazilian player called Reevaldo.

By taking you through scenarios based on our lawyers’ own industry experience, we endeavour to shine light on how key areas of the football industry actually work, from transfers and contract negotiations to image rights, agents and everything in between.

This project is intended to be an interactive and engaging way to learn more about the legal and commercial aspects of football and serves as a brief introduction to the sports team at Mills & Reeve.

For comments, questions, and to get in touch with the sports team at Mills & Reeve, please feel free to contact Carol Couse ( and Tiran Gunawardena (

We hope you enjoy following along!
