Alternative Dispute Resolution

Part of the ASSER International Sports Law Series book series (ASSER)

Abstract

With so much money circulating and to be made in sport at the national and global levels, it is not surprising that disputes arise from time to time, not only of a purely sporting nature, for example, eligibility issues, but also of a commercial nature, for example under Sports Marketing Agreements, the subject of this Book. Such Agreements, however well drafted, are not immune from disputes, controversies and disagreements of one kind or another; and the question that naturally arises and falls to be answered, in each case, is how best to resolve them. By traditional or modern means? In other words, through the Courts or by some form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) outside the Courts system, that is, by extra-judicial means?
