Company in Dubai sues football player for Dh440,000

A sports mediation company in Dubai has sued a football player for Dh440,000 after the latter allegedly refused to pay them for their services.

The company claimed that it provided services and legal administrative advice to the player before their contract expired in 2020.

The case was first heard at the Civil Court in Dubai, which dismissed the lawsuit and concluded that the company did not play a role in the player’s contract with his club. The Court of Appeals also upheld the verdict.

The company then filed a new lawsuit at the Dispute Resolution Chamber of the Players’ Status and Transfers Committee in the UAE Football Association.

The committee rejected the case and a subsequent appeal, and upheld the ruling of the court, which obligated the company to pay the fees and expenses of the case.

The football player’s lawyer reiterated that the company could not prove that it played a role in his contract with his football club, which caused the case to be dismissed. ICA/Expat Media
