Successful Defence of the Bulgarian Football Union before CAS

Kambourov & Partners successfully defended the interests of the Bulgarian Football Union (BFU) before the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland (CAS). Kambourov & Partners was retained to represent BFU in two arbitration proceedings initiated respectively by the professional football clubs of Litex Lovech and Levski Sofia in relation to decisions taken by the Disciplinary Committee and the Sports-Technical Committee of the BFU. In the matter opposing PFC Litex to the BFU the arbitral tribunal adhered to the Respondent’s argument for lack of jurisdiction and terminated the proceedings. The proceedings initiated by PFC Levski were also terminated as the Claimant withdrew its appeal following a request for termination filed by the BFU. Kambourov & Partners’ team has thus reaffirmed its reputation as experts in the field of sports related international arbitration
