Joint and Several Liability of Clubs: CAS 2021/A/7784 CD Saprissa v. Nantong Zhiyun FC & Román Rubilio Castillo Álvarez

Joint and Several Liability of Clubs: CAS 2021/A/7784 CD Saprissa v. Nantong Zhiyun FC & Román Rubilio Castillo Álvarez
No FIFA provision allows FIFA to act ex officio to condemn a party that has never been called a party or to consider a so-called “Intervening Party” as a party to a proceeding. This is not possible without any formal request by a claimant. A simple letter to a person or club is not sufficient to create an “Intervening Party” status, especially without pointing out the possible consequences of such an inclusion, if any.
