The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)

The CAS is an independent institution, created in 1984 and involved in resolving disputes arising in the field of sport, and is the leading centralised international body which appoints tribunals to make final determinations of certain types of sport disputes. A range of types of dispute are resolved at the CAS as are reflected in the different divisions of the CAS.

Note that, unless otherwise specified, the term ‘CAS’ is used generally in this Practice Note to refer to any of the different CAS divisions, the International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS), and the CAS Court Office. The CAS is also referred to in French as the Tribunal Arbitral du Sport (TAS).

The CAS is located in Lausanne, Switzerland with representative administrative offices in Sydney, Australia and New York, USA.

The CAS is generally responsible for taking charge of the first stages of the arbitration process once the arbitration has been commenced but before the arbitrators are appointed.
