The case of Harold Mayne-Nicholls: A relentless pursuit

It is no secret that FIFA and FIFA associated football officials have been embroiled in a series of scandals over the course of the past several years. From the arrangement of television marketing rights through the International Sport and Leisure Corporation to the more current series of cases involving members of the FIFA Executive Committee allegedly selling their influence, the members of both the Investigatory Chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee (‘FIFA Ethics Committee IC’) and the Adjudicatory Chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee (‘FIFA Ethics Committee AC’) have been busy attempting to enforce the application of the FIFA Code of Ethics. This process has touched the highest offices in the football world; however there is one case, that of Harold Mayne-Nicholls, that appears to be quite different. Juan de Dios Crespo Pérez and Paolo Torchetti of Ruiz-Huerta & Crespo Sport Lawyers, analyse the case of Mayne-Nicholls in detail and the legal ramifications of the delays throughout the legal proceedings, which resulted in Mayne-Nicholls serving a longer ban from football than was ultimately handed down by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
