The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has rejected Lagardère Sports’ application for interim emergency measures in the agency’s dispute with the Confederation of African Football (CAF) over the cancellation of a 12-year global media and sponsorship rights contract.

The Geneva-based body rebuffed the agency’s bid and ordered it to pay the costs of the arbitration proceedings and contribute over €60,000 ($66,800) towards CAF’s legal costs, according to the soccer confederation.
