No revision of CAS award for lack of conclusive evidence


Case Number: 4A_662/2018 (14 May 2018)

In a German-language decision only recently published, the Swiss Supreme Court refused to revise an award rendered by a Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) Panel. The decision concerned a dispute between football clubs (A) and (B) in relation to the transfer of football player (D) from A to B. Pursuant to the transfer agreement, A was to receive some of the proceeds of a future transfer of D by B. Following D's transfer to another football club (C), A initiated arbitration proceedings against B, claiming that B had concealed the real transfer value by way of "simulated contracts" with C.
