Morgan Sports Law wins Dalian CAS case

Chinese football club was in dispute with Belgian club Koninklijk Diegem over solidarity payment



Morgan Sports Law has successfully represented Chinese football club Dalian Professional Football Club in a Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) dispute with Belgian football club Koninklijk Diegem.


On 25 February 2020, Belgian football club Koninklijk Diegem Sport filed a claim for solidarity contribution against Dalian Professional Football Club in relation to the transfer of the Belgian professional football player Yannick Ferreira Carrasco from the Spanish football club Atlético de Madrid to Dalian Pro in February 2018.


The FIFA DRC dismissed Koninklijk Diegem Sport 's claim, but the club appealed that decision before the CAS on 21 July 2020.


CAS has now dismissed Koninklijk Diegem Sport’s claim.


Dalian Professional Football Club was represented by Morgan Sports Law partner William Sternheimer (pictured).
