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.
