Dimitar Ivanov vs. CS Dinamo Bucuresti

The CEV Mediation Chamber ruled entirely in favor of the Bulgarian volleyball player, Dimitar Ivanov, represented by Georgi Gradev, against the Romanian volleyball club, CS Dinamo Bucuresti, in the financial dispute between the parties.

CEV decided that the player could not be fined for the club failing to reach its sporting goals (i.e. for poor performance or sporting results) and hence, the set-off against part of his salary applied by Dinamo Bucuresti is unlawful.

If Dinamo Bucuresti fails to pay the outstanding amount to Dimitar Ivanov, plus the default interest, on or before 17 December 2015, the Romanian club will be automatically banned from registering new players internationally as from 18 December 2015 until the repayment of the entire debt towards the player.
