Some comparative economics of the organization of sports: Competition and regulation in north American vs. European professional team sports leagues

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Wladimir Andreff (CES - Centre d'economie de la Sorbonne - Universite Paris I - Pantheon Sorbonne) offers thoughts on Some comparative economics of the organization of sports: Competition and regulation in north American vs. European professional team sports leagues.

ABSTRACT: The paper presents the differences between the design of a closed and an open team sports league. Then it compares the theoretical models of a closed league with profit maximizing clubs and an open league with win maximizing clubs. Both models are now outdated by a Nash equilibrium model which is briefly sketeched. In the case of open leagues, a disequilibrium model seems more appropriate and a first attempt at elaborating it are exhibited.
