    case in point

    Would you say that the use of "case in point" is correct in the sentence below?

    Sports federations are criticized for being insufficiently democratic. As a case in point, the richer football clubs seek a more direct role in the decision-making process. FIFA and UEFA, on the other hand, maintain that the current form of representation, which gives clubs a voice through their national associations, is adequate, and that the organizational efficiency and essential values of sport would suffer if major clubs were permitted more influence.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The fact that sports federations are not democratic is why the richer FCs seek a more direct role in the decision-making process.
