While sports typically generate a vast and extensive physical competition, the governance of organized sports also generates intense legal disputes. Recently, one of these disputes resolved an issue of cprporate law in the United Kingdom, although the case is currently being appealed. In Re the Football Association Premier League Ltd. v. Fulham ("Fulham"), devided in 2011, the court affirmed judgment on a purely legal issue previously left unclear: is an unfair prejudice action arbitrable? Ultimately, the court decided to issue a stay of court proceedings pending the outcome of arbitration, reasoning that the subject is capable of being heard in arbitration.
