Tribunal Arbitral du Sport

MEDIA RELEASE FOOTBALL THE COURT OF ARBITRATION FOR SPORT (CAS) REGISTERS  AN APPEAL FILED BY THE AGENT CARMINE “MINO” RAIOLA – URGENT REQUEST FOR A STAY GRANTED – EXPEDITED CAS PROCEDURE ONGOING Lausanne, 12 June 2019 – The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has registered an urgent appeal filed by the football intermediary, Carmine “Mino” Raiola, against the decision taken by the FIFA Appeal Committee on 28 May 2019 (the Challenged Decision) which confirmed a previous decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee. In such decision, a three-month period of suspension from performing the role of sports agent in Italy which was imposed on Mino Raiola by the Intermediaries Committee of the Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio (FIGC) was extended by FIFA to become a worldwide ban. Prior to the filing of his appeal, Mino Raiola also filed an urgent application to stay the execution of the Challenged Decision. On 7 June 2019, the President of the CAS Appeals Arbitration Division upheld the application. Accordingly, the worldwide extension of the suspension of Mino Raiola is stayed pending the outcome of the CAS proceedings. However, the suspension imposed by the FIGC in Italy is not affected by the CAS decision. Further to the parties’ agreement, CAS will conduct an expedited procedure with a shortened procedural calendar in order to allow for a final decision to be rendered at the beginning of July 2019.
