From the combination of these two worlds, there must be found which is the best solution for a sports club to participate in the professional competitions with the main goal of being successful and, above all, to adapt to the new realities that are always changing. Thereby, in sport”s environment, there are sport”s companies that can be constitutued in the form of a public limited liability sport”s company or single shareholder limited liability sports company proprietorship sports company, whose judicial regime is regulated in Decree-Law nº10/2013, 25th of january. Although, this diploma was a novelty and indispensable, taking into account the need of a greater regulation in the world of sports and, consequently, of sports societies, it is not immune to criticism because it may still be unconvincing and insufficient to defend the interests of those societies.
