The second chapter reviews sports legislation in the State of Qatar, the bodies in charge of managing sports in the country, as well as the most prominent pioneering initiatives that Qatar has led in the field of sports and their legal dimensions.
While the third chapter is devoted to dealing with special issues raised in the framework of sports law, such as professional sports contracts, sports sponsorship, contracts for the transmission and broadcast of sporting events, insurance, human rights, animal rights, environmental protection in the sports field, stimulants, stadium riots, sports administration and others.
The book comes in accordance with the plans and programs of the Qatar University Press, at a time when the State of Qatar is preparing to host the first World Cup in the Arab region, "Qatar 2022 World Cup".

The book was introduced by Lawyer Salman Al-Ansari, Secretary General of Qatar Foundation for Sports Arbitration and Arbitrator at FIFA, who in turn indicated that the book comes to fill a noticeable void in the Arab legal library. The author embarked on the authoring experience in a field in which legal sources are occasional in the Arabic language, which is a daunting matter that requires strenuous efforts and scientific courage to accomplish it.

The book of colleague Dr. Abdel Nasser Hayajneh fulfills an urgent need in the literature of law, and at the same time it meets the goals and plans of the house in distinguished scientific publishing.”
