The global sports market is now worth more than $350 billion and disputes and conflicts arise on a daily basis from grass routes through to the elite level. Often such disputes can be ‘bet the ranch’ type matters with livelihoods and significant money at stake. More and more of these kinds of disputes are being resolved via alternative dispute resolution methods adopted by individuals, governing bodies, and other sporting organisations.

ADR can allow for greater flexibility than court litigation and can also allow for international disputes being resolved through a single, uniform procedure.

The purpose of this webinar is to provide a summary of what ADR is, why it is used in sports and how it is currently being implemented.
