Amidst the plethora of issues that need to be managed, far down below in the list of priorities for UK will be how they will deal with the impact of British Exit from EU (Brexit) on the non-EU players who come under the Kolpak, Bosman, and Cotonou agreements. This article deals with a detailed literature review of existing rulings and the potential impact of Brexit on the sportsmen plying their trade in UK under the relaxed conditions of the above agreements and how things will be different once Brexit is implemented by 2019.
