Abstract: This article aims to present a dual analysis of the European Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee in the Professional Football Sector, exploring its limits and opportunities both from a legal and a political point of view. It is shown that the legal context of the SDCPF poses several limitations, while the recent agreement on Minimum Requirements for Standard Players’ Contracts does not have immediate far-reaching (legal) consequences. The political analysis uncovers that FIFPro is the only actor in the SDCPF for which European social dialogue has a clear and indisputable added value. As long as they do not have far-reaching consequences for the signatories and their constituents, new agreements however may be produced by the committee.
