Dr. Diaconu secures important win for a football club in CAS arbitration regarding COVID-19 salary cuts

On 14 April 2022, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruled in favor of a football club, FCSB SA, who had performed salary cuts during the COVID-19 pandemics.

Considering that such cuts were, in large part, lawfully implemented by the Club, the CAS partially admitted the Club's appeal and overturned a previous FIFA DRC decision, which had granted a Player a total indemnity of EUR 168'000. The Panel reduced this by 70%. 

The arbitral award will be published by the CAS.
