In its journey towards establishing uniformity, FIFA created a Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) in 2001 to resolve disputes regarding the international status and transfer of players. During the years 2002–2006, exactly 597 decisions of the DRC were published on the website of FIFA. In this book all the relevant decisions of the DRC during that period are analysed and classified into different categories. After a discussion of the most relevant judicial aspects in relation to the DRC, the different categories of disputes, amongst others the termination of the employment contract, the amount of compensation and the sporting sanctions, are discussed in depth. This book can serve as a practical work of reference by all persons working in the field of international football, such as sports lawyers and sports advisers, and also by students, researchers, players, clubs and national associations.

• First monograph on the subject makes the work of the FIFA DRC more accessible to the audience • Contains elaborated general, explanatory and analytical parts, thus promoting a better understanding of the development and importance of the case law concerned • Full text of selected decisions is directly related to the analysis of cases in the first part, thus helping to improve the visibility of this new important judicial sport (professional) organ
