The Creation of the Dispute Resolution Chamber in Colombia
The case of Juventud Las Américas - an amateur football club of Santa Marta, Colombia - began in 2014 and ended in April 2020 before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
 
TAS 2019/A/6228 Club Deportivo Juventud las Américas c. Club Deportivo Popular Junior F.C. S.A.

How did it start?

In 2014, Juventud las Américas (JA) requested from Club Deportivo Junior (Junior) - one of Colombia’s wealthiest clubs - the payment of the training compensation, in accordance with the Player Status Regulations of the Colombian Football Federation (CFF) in the amount of COP 38,000,000 (approx. EUR 9,000). In the player’s passport, Junior registered the player as professional for the first time on 12 March 2013, so according to CFF Regulations, JA was entitled to receive that amount.
