President’s Message


Since the State of Qatar became the host nation of the World Cup 2022, all national sectors including the sports sector have embarked on a new level of improvement processes to ensure the State of Qatar provides the best possible services.


The improvements and restructuring introduced to the sport sector aimed to enhance the values of independence of work, transparency and performance efficiency. Thus, in the light of the forgoing, each of the sports organizations in the State of Qatar took steps to ensure that these values are achieved in their operations.


With the rapid developments in the sports sector, the need for judicial proceedings available for this sector became evident. We believe that the creation of a specialized, independent body for the sports sector with the authority to oversee and resolve sport-related disputes has become a necessity to ensure that the separation of powers is achieved in resolving sports-related disputes, and that such disputes are settled and resolved by virtue of mechanisms and procedures that guarantee to safeguard their specificity and in accordance with international practices in this area.


Within the framework of incorporating the Qatar Sports Arbitration Foundation, we made sure that the foundation has full autonomy from any other organization and that it operates with full judicial independence in order to achieve its objectives with full transparency and efficiency.

Ibrahim K. Al-Mohannadi
