The case involved a football club in Mexico and a Brazilian player. A dispute as to the player’s compensation resulted in a decision of the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber in November 2010, holding that it did not have jurisdiction, whereupon the player filed a claim with the Mexican Conciliation and Resolution of Controversies Commission (“CRCC”). On July 26, 2011, the CRCC found that the claim was time-barred under applicable Mexican law.
