The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) is an international arbitral tribunal established in Lausanne, Switzerland to settle disputes related to sports. Today, it is the world's most established international dispute resolution body for sports law. English is the predominant official working language of the CAS, meaning all oral arguments, legal submissions and evidence (e.g., documents and witness testimony) must be in English in nearly all CAS cases.
Accordingly, if you plan to bring a FIFA dispute before the CAS, a native English-speaking sports lawyer will help ensure that language is not a barrier to success in the case.
