Abstract: Sport law as a highly developed complex branch of law regulates legal relations related to the subject of the different branches of law. Liability for violation of rights, non-performance or improper performance of duties is the basis of criminal, administrative, disciplinary and civil liability. However, there is another type of liability and sanctions provided for violation of sport rules. Nevertheless, no commonly accepted opinion has still been formed whether sports liability is a new type of legal liability or not. Therefore, the aim of the research paper, through general scientific methods (mono­graphic method, analytical method, historical method, comparative method, induction deduction) and methods of interpreting legal norms (grammatical, historical, teleological and systemic methods) is to determine the concept and content of sport liability. To reach the proposed aim, the authors of the study have formulated the concept and signs of sports liability, determined the types of a sports offense, analysed non-standard cases that outside the sports industry would not be subject to any liability and have identified main types of sports sanctions.
