The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, is the highest legal authority and arbitration tribunal in charge of settling international disputes related to sport. When there is an arbitration agreement between the parties specifying recourse to CAS, CAS international arbitrators act to solve the disputes submitted.
