Content and Structure
It is the Commission's duty to uphold the free movement of people in line with Internal Market principles. In the field of sport, this means ensuring that professional and amateur sportspeople can circulate freely across the EU, while taking into account the specific characteristics of the sport sector and the needs of individual sporting disciplines. The principles of free movement for workers, non-discrimination and citizenship rights are firmly established in EU law.
