The Jurisprudence of the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber
In its journey towards establishing uniformity, FIFA created a Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) in 2001 to resolve disputes regarding the international status and transfer of players. During the years 2002-2006, exactly 597 decisions of the DRC were published on the website of FIFA. In this book all the relevant decisions of the DRC during that period are analysed and classified into different categories. After a discussion of the most relevant judicial aspects in relation to the DRC, the different categories of disputes, amongst others the termination of the employment contract, the amount of compensation and the sporting sanctions, are discussed in depth. This book can serve as a practical work of reference by all persons working in the field of international football, such as sports lawyers and sports advisers, and also by students, researchers, players, clubs and national associations.
