Litigation, Dispute Resolution and CAS

Disputes in Sport

Sporting disputes can often be resolved by utilising internal tribunals and disciplinary procedures. In the event that they cannot be resolved internally these matters may require other forms of resolution including litigation in a Civil or Criminal court, or Arbitration through the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) is an international body that is set up to settle sports related disputes.  CAS is an independent institution and is separate to any sporting organisation. Its headquarters are in Lausanne (Switzerland) but its courts and offices are located in many major cities.
