The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) is an arbitration body set up to settle disputes related to sports. Its headquarters are in Lausanne.

It was originally conceived by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to deal with disputes arising during the Olympics. It was established as part of the IOC in 1984. However since its inception, in order to be seen as independent of the IOC, it has become financially and administratively separate from that organisation.

The majority of cases considered by CAS deal with doping or transfer fees paid within professional football, so it should have the experience to deal with the Carlos Tevez matter.
