This page includes notes of Dr. Despina Mavromati on recent sports arbitration decisions – Swiss Federal Tribunal judgments, CAS Awards and decisions rendered by the tribunals of sports federations. For the English translations & introductory notes on the Federal Tribunal judgments in both CAS and commercial arbitration cases, you can visit the website Swiss Arbitration Decisions (operated jointly by Dr. Despina Mavromati and Dr. Charles Poncet) as a service to the international arbitration community.
Arbitrability of a contractual dispute between a football player and a club in case of insolvency proceedings
Sporting successors in football and res judicata of disciplinary proceedings before association bodies
No direct challenge to the Swiss Federal Tribunal following a decision rendered by the CAS Anti-Doping Division acting as a first-instance tribunal
Very limited scope of review in case of non-compliance with the form requirements and the applicable time limits
No legal interest to challenge a CAS award in case of an “intention to bring a future action for damages at a later stage”
(Re-)confirmed: the non-compliance with the time limits to file an appeal to the CAS is a question of admissibility
