Issues

Currently, NCAA restrictions prohibit schools from compensating student-athletes, in the form of grants-in-aid and athletic participation awards, above the cost of attendance. The NCAA implements such restrictions to preserve “amateurism” in college sports, which differentiates college athletics from professional athletics. Ted Lasso, the star point guard for the Tulania University basketball team, brings a lawsuit against the NCAA challenging these restrictions, alleging that they are an undue restraint of trade in violation of Section 1 of the Sherman Act. 

 

Questions Presented:

 

  1. Under Section 1 of the Sherman Act, are the NCAA restrictions on student-athlete compensation above the cost of attendance subject to a detailed rule-of-reason analysis or an abbreviated analysis?
  2. If the Court chooses to apply a detailed rule-of-reason analysis, are the NCAA restrictions on student-athlete compensation above the cost of attendance an undue restraint of trade in violation of Section 1 of the Sherman Act?
