FIFA mediators engage in online workshop

As part of the constant effort to modernize and provide efficient service to parties and stakeholders, FIFA has recently included the possibility to solve the parties’ disputes through mediation. This alternative dispute resolution mechanism allows the parties to put an end to their controversies with the assistance of a mediator in a swift and efficient manner.

On 25 March 2022, took place the first mediation workshop, which included the attendance of FIFA Administration and all the newly appointed mediators, as a first step for the successful implementation of mediation within the proceedings of the Football Tribunal.
