The case involved a dispute as to the share of a transfer fee that was owed to a professional football player. In the summer of 2012, the player took his club to the Players’ Status Committee of his national federation, which declined jurisdiction. He then appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and arbitrator Luis Moreno upheld his jurisdiction and decided the case on the merits. He granted the player an amount of USD 1’750’000 in his award of December 31, 2013.

The case involved an Egyptian football club and a professional player who had a disagreement which the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber decided in the player’s favor in June 2013. An appeal was made to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (“CAS”) and a three-arbitrator panel (chairman Mark Hovell with arbitrators Michael Gerlinger and Christian Duve) issued an award in October 2014, essentially upholding the DRC decision but correcting the amounts in several respects.

The case involved a players’ agent who signed a contract with a club in Chile, pursuant to which he would perform some services and be paid in instalments. When only the first two instalments were paid, he sued in the FIFA Players’ Status Committee but in February 2014, the single judge of the Players’ Status Committee rejected the claim because he found that the Claimant failed to establish that his activities fell within the FIFA Players’ Agents Regulations.
