Sports Arbitration is becoming a popular subfield in arbitration. Arbitration is frequently cited as having a number of advantages over litigation, including speed, cost effectiveness and flexibility of proceedings. Arbitration is also, generally, a private process whereby the content and outcome of the proceedings remain confidential. Generally, an arbitration award is final and binding on the parties to arbitration. In this regard, the Korean Arbitration Act states that the arbitral award shall have the same effect on the parties as the final and conclusive judgement of the court(Art.35). The ideal of arbitration is the full and final resolution of disputes privately. However, the successful party cannot directly enforce the award without the court‘s assistance. If the unsuccessful party does not voluntarily comply with it, they will need to take steps to enforce it. Recognition and enforcement are crucial elements of arbitration. Without the possibility for the winning party to enforce the arbitral award in its desired country, the whole arbitration process becomes pointless. Parties will not perceive arbitration as a viable alternative to state court proceedings if the resulting arbitral award will not be enforced with the same or at least equivalent effects as a state court‘s judgment. As sport turns increasingly to arbitration for the resolution of its disputes, so national courts will need to support this trend by enforcing commitments to arbitrate and limiting the scope for judicial intervention. According to KAA, recognition and enforcement of sports arbitration require the disputes ‘in private law(Art. 1)’ and ‘in respect of defined legal relationships(Art. 3)’ as arbitrability. This paper discusses the arbitrability of sports arbitration as requirements for recognition and enforcement in the Korean Arbitration Act and aims to examine the issue of recognition and enforcement of sports arbitration awards.
