The new legal framework has just been approved which will bring practical changes for clubs and sports contracts. The Portuguese Parliament approved the draft law that gave form to the revision of Law no. 28/98, of June 26, which approves the Legal Framework of the sports worker’s Work Contract and the sports training contract. The legal framework now approved, although not constituting a structural change in the legal framework of the sports worker’s work contract, contains innovative aspects that will merit the attention of all the sports relevant agent.
