Bär & Karrer advised the International Surfing Association

On 6 August 2020, The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) reached a decision on a dispute between the International Surfing Association (ISA) and the International Canoe Federation (ICF), to award the governance of the sport of Stand-Up Paddelboard (SUP) at Olympic Level to the ISA. Both International Federations claimed that the governance of SUP would fall into their respective fields of competence. The ISA welcomed the decision and will continue to work for the growth of the sport of SUP on an international level.

Bär & Karrer’s Sports Law Team represented the ISA before CAS. The team included Jan Kleiner (pictured), Lukas Stocker and Luca Tarzia (all Sports Law).
