Football Association Premier League Ltd v Luxton

European Union – Freedom of movement. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division dismissed the appeal of a public house owner against a decision granting the claimant Football Association an injunction to prevent Al from broadcasting football matches in his public house using a domestic decoding card. The court held that his defences under art 101 and/or art 56 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union were not made out on the basis of insufficient connection between enforcement of a legal right and the alleged anti-competitive activity.
