In a German-language decision of 19 April 2011, published on 19 May 2011, the Swiss Supreme Court (Supreme Court) upheld an award rendered by a tribunal of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The Supreme Court held that the CAS lacked jurisdiction over a dispute between a Turkish football player and a Turkish football club, as the applicable statutes and regulations did not provide for arbitration, and the parties did not conclude a specific arbitration agreement.
