This article examines the regulation of the personal non-property rights of athletes in the context of modern contractual structures used in their professional activities. The author justifies that contracts used in professional sports have their own characteristics. The article analyzes European and Ukrainian legislation and individual contracts with the participation of athletes, which makes it possible to draw a conclusion about the presence and use of atypical contractual structures in this field. In general, the article emphasizes the need to use contractual structures to regulate not only the professional activities of athletes but also the regulation of personal non-property rights, which is more than topical in modern conditions.
