In a dispute between an Italian football club and an English company based on the acquisition by the English company of the economic rights of an Argentine professional football player, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) accepted jurisdiction and its Panel (chairman Ricardo de Buen, with arbitrators José Juan Pinto and Massimo Coccia) awarded the English company an amount of EUR 9’400’000, which was then challenged in the Federal Tribunal by way of a Civil law appeal.

The matter involved an Argentinian player who entered into a contract with two players’ agents in Argentina and then unilaterally terminated the contract.

 

The agents sued in the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which had jurisdiction pursuant to an arbitration clause in the contract. The CAS Panel (chairman José Juan Pinto with arbitrators Riccardo de Buen and Hernan Ferrari) essentially upheld the claim but only awarded EUR 1 million instead of the EUR 3 million claimed.
