DOHA: Saud Al Mohannadi, Vice-President of Qatar Football

Association, revealed that efforts to establish a court for sport

arbitration in Qatar have been in full gear for the past three years.

Al Mohannadi, who earlier this month was named head of competitions’

committee in the Asian Football Confederation, cited the recent founding

of a local fully independent footballers union as a vital step in realizing

the goal of establishing an internationally recognized sports judicial body

in Qatar.

“In addition to various entities in and outside of Qatar, the Qatar National

Olympic Committee has lent its support since the early stages of this

project, this was demonstrated back in March when QFA and QNOC confirmed

the partnership between the two bodies”, he said.

The court will provide services in order to resolve legal disputes in the field

of sport through arbitration and mediation in accordance to the rules and

regulations of FIFA and other internationally recognized bodies.
