Arbitration, as a commonly used method of resolving all kinds of disputes, today, has a special place among the stakeholders, especially in sporting disputes. The use of this method in resolving sporting disputes can reduce the number of parties seeking recourse to the courts as arbitration is a faster and more precise method in resolving such disputes. The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) is one of the international institutions established to resolve sporting disputes through specialized arbitration. Even though more than three decades have passed since the establishment of this Court, and the Court has since handled several essential cases (like one case where one of the parties was Iranian), the Court’s jurisdiction and structure are not yet well known even among the scholars, let alone the layperson. Therefore, a proper understanding of this arbitration mechanism is necessary. Consequently, the present article seeks to examine the jurisdiction and structure of the tribunal in resolving sporting disputes and suggests ways in which the CAS can further improve on the already good work that it is doing.
