Primus Successful for Lithuanian Football Federation in Court of Arbitration for Sport


Primus has successfully represented the Lithuanian Football Federation (LFF) in an arbitration before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), based in Lausanne, Switzerland.

A football club and its players had appealed several decisions of the LFF’s disciplinary bodies to impose sanctions on football club and its players due to match-fixing related infringements. The CAS dismissed the appeal and upheld the LFF’s sanctions.

According to Primus, “this CAS award shall have a big impact on the fight against match-fixing in the future: from now on the federations will have more flexibility to govern different types of match fixing violations and the disciplinary bodies of federations will be able to investigate potential match fixing violations while assessing experts’ conclusions based on analysis of particular match videos."

The Primus team consisted of lawyers Marius Devyzis and Martynas Kalvelis.
