Litigation may not be the best-case scenario for sport disputes. Professional or amateur athletes’ job is to fight within the terrain and not in court rooms.

There is already a majority of sport disputes that are resolved with arbitration, nationally or at international level. However, there is a tendency the last years to substitute arbitration with mediation.

With mediation athletes, coaches, managers, officials, administrators, sport clubs may resolve their disputes fast, at low cost and most of all effectively.

In sports mediation the solution is crafted by the parties according to their interests and needs. It is not an arbitral award that the parties have to comply with.

With sports mediation personal relationships are protected. Privacy and confidentiality is maintained throughout the mediation procedure from the very beginning to the end. These are some of the benefits sports mediation has to offer.
