The International Handball Federation Recognizes CRCICA-Hosted CAS AHC for Use in Middle East Sports Disputes

During its last meeting in Kolding, Denmark on 24 June 2015, the Executive Committee of the International Handball Federation unanimously agreed to recognize the CRCICA-hosted CAS AHC to be used in case of any sports dispute, which may arise in the Middle East, after the consent of CAS.

This development is recognized as a strong boost for the Agreement CRCICA concluded with the International Court of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS) in 2012, nominating it as a host of an Alternative Hearing Centre (AHC) for the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) based in Switzerland.

The CRCICA CAS AHC is the first in Africa and joins other three AHCs all over the world in Malaysia, China and Abu Dhabi. This is part of a delocalization scheme of the International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS) to create CAS alternative hearing centres on different continents which would be used to host CAS hearings and meetings related to arbitration or mediation procedures involving parties based in certain regions in the world.
