FIFA Executive Programme in Sports Arbitration

The FIFA Executive Programme in Sports Arbitration, 2nd edition provides a hands-on approach to all aspects related to proceedings before the CAS. FIFA has a long standing and extensive CAS practice, being the international federation with the most experience of dealing with such procedures.

The programme will run from February to April 2022 and will combine online and on-site sessions, with the opening module at the FIFA offices in Paris and the closing module at the FIFA HQ in Zurich. The admission process is open from 15 October until 15 December 2021.
