De Quesada noted that “The CAS ad hoc divisions have become a key element for the good organisation of different international competitions. For instance, the CAS Ad Hoc Divisions are present in the Olympic Games since 1996 and in the FIFA World Cup since 2006. The CAS Ad Hoc Divisions provide legal certainty and a very fast resolution system to the relevant stakeholders to solve disputes that may arise during the competitions, as such disputes are per se very urgent”.
Calo also pointed out: “As Qatar prepares to host the FIFA World Cup, this event provided an opportunity to explore the critical role of the CAS in addressing disputes that arise during mega-sporting events”.
