Abstract: After a long time and after women overcame many obstacles, they have won a place in the sport's world. Nowadays and however, there are many irregularities and abuses, especially in professional sport. The objective of this research has been, first, to know if society perceives gender discrimination in sport. Secondly, the objective of this research is to review the current regulations to find possible disputes or legal gaps that give rise to these situations of discrimination. On these two lines of work, this paper searches an explanation to argue why these irregularities that discriminate against women still exist. Also, is needed to write new lines of action in order to avoid discrimination to achieve effective equality between men and women in professional sport. The used methodology has been a questionnaire, a survey, the systematic review of literature and the study of the current law. The results show that athletes still suffer gender discrimination and at the same time society recognizes the existence of this discrimination. In addition, current regulations are outdated and do not consider female sport to be professional, which leads to the fact that women cannot have collective agreements when signing contracts, giving rise to gender discrimination. The conclusions of this study recommend an urgent update of the regulations that can meet the social needs of demand for effective gender equality, as well as a greater presence of gender issues in emerging sports policies.
