G+T partner to head sporting body

G+T partner to head sporting body

Gilbert + Tobin partner Moya Dodd has been appointed as a member of the International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS).

A media specialist in G+T’s competition & regulation group, Dodd (pictured) will join ICAS as an athlete representative, having represented Australia as a player and vice captain of the Matildas football team from 1986 to 1995.

Comprised of 20 distinguished international lawyers with sports and arbitration backgrounds, the ICAS supervises the management of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), an international body that settle disputes within the sports industry.

Dodd (pictured) replaces Thomas Bach, who was recently elected as the president of the International Olympic Committee.

“I am delighted to serve as an ICAS member and grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the good governance of world sport in this way,” said Dodd.

John Coates, ICAS President, commented on Dodd’s appointment: “Moya will bring her strong experience, both as an international lawyer and former elite football player to advise the ICAS with respect to athletes’ legal preoccupations.”

In May, Dodd became Australia’s first member on football’s world governing body, FIFA, when she was co-opted for a year to its executive committee.

Dodd is also vice-president of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), a director on the Football Federation Australia board and chair of the AFC Women’s Committee.

As vice-president of the AFC, Dodd was involved in the overturning of the ban on the hijab for women players in FIFA tournaments, working alongside FIFA’s vice-president, Prince Ali of Jordan, in that process.
