The International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS), which governs the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), has adopted amendments to the CAS Code, with effect from November 1, 2022. According to a press release from the CAS, the amendments address the “significant increase” in football arbitrations by increasing the number of ICAS members from 20 to 22 so that more stakeholders are represented on the Council. In addition, the amendments reflect that the ICAS Legal Aid Commission will manage a new, dedicated Football Legal Aid Fund. Finally, a number of smaller amendments have been made to “tighten up existing language” and bring the Code in line with current practice.
