About Us

At the heart of the Sports Mediation Center's mission is to offer unparalleled assistance to the sports community, addressing conflicts arising from both professional and amateur sports engagements through the effective application of mediation principles.

Crafting Optimal


Our approach to sports mediation is crucial in scenarios where long-term collaboration and future partnerships between parties are key. The advantages of choosing mediation include:

  • Swift Resolution: Mediation proceedings are notably quicker than traditional court cases.
  • Economical: It is a cost-effective alternative to legal battles.
  • Relationship Preservation: Focused on dialogue, mediation fosters mutual understanding and helps preserve valuable relationships.
  • Autonomy in Decision-Making: Unlike court judgments, mediation allows parties to craft their own mutually agreeable solutions.
  • Win-Win Outcomes: Mediation empowers parties to devise solutions that are satisfactory for all, avoiding externally imposed decisions.

Our Center spearheads mediation in a broad spectrum of sports-related disputes, excluding disciplinary and doping cases. We pride ourselves on delivering top-tier mediation services, led by mediators with deep expertise in sports law and an understanding of the nuances in sports disputes.
