Morgan Sports Law wins Appiah CAS appeal

Latvian federation's suspension and €1,000 fine annulled


A Morgan Sports Law team led by partner William Sternheimer (pictured) successfully represented Ghanaian footballer Ofosu Appiah in his Court of Arbitration for Sport Appeal against a suspension and fine for alleged involvement in match fixing.


On 25 October 2021, the Latvian Football Federation Appeals Committee confirmed the LFF Ethics Committee’s decision to sanction Mr Ofosu Appiah with a one-year suspension from football and €1,000 fine for his alleged involvement in match-fixing.


Appiah instructed Morgan Sports Law to represent him in an appeal of the decision and associated sanctions to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.


Following the appeal, CAS has now annulled the decision of the LFF Appeals Committee.

Accordingly, Appiah has been cleared of all accusations of wrongdoing and is permitted to return to competitions with immediate effect.


In addition to Sternheimer, the Morgan Sports Law team also included associate Imen Larabi and trainee solicitor Sam Comb
