Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju inaugurates the country’s first “Sports Arbitration Centre of India” in Gujarat on Sunday. 

The center would act as an independent authority to resolve sports-related issues and will have a far-reaching impact on the sports sector. 

The SACI is promoted by Ahmedabad-based SE TransStadia Pvt Ltd as an independent body to help speed up sports-related disputes. 

However, the TransStadia founder and Managing Director Udit Sheth stated that the SACI will name a few well-known arbitrators who are completely independent of the company.

The Ministry of Law and Justice will provide full legal support to the Sports Arbitration Centre of India, which will serve as a mechanism to redress sports-related issues, an idea never before deemed in India.

“The SACI will have a far-reaching impact for the sports sector of the country by creating a reputation and establishing credibility for itself through the provision to settle disputes and other issues and concerns of the sports sector in a fast, transparent and very accountable manner,” Rijiju said.

After the inauguration event, he stated, the “Sports Arbitration Centre of India (SACI) is going to give a major push to make the sports sector big. Because when the sector grows, there will emerge lots of issues attached to it. So you have provisions to handle those emerging issues,”.

The Union Minister also stated that more work remains to be done in order to build the country as a sporting nation.

Therefore, the expansion of fields like sports arbitration, sports science, sports medicine, and training is necessary. 

However, earlier Kiren Rijiju had served as the Union Minister of sports, and being a sports enthusiast he has made a significant contribution to India.
