Goal! Profit Maximization Versus Win Maximization in Soccer

Goal! Profit Maximization Versus Win Maximization in Soccer In this paper we estimate the best responses of soccer clubs to the choices of other clubs in Spanish and English leagues over the period 1994–2004. We find that choices are more closely approximated by win maximization than by profit maximization in both leagues. We examine club characteristics that might explain variations in choices between Spanish clubs. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Review of Industrial Organization Springer Journals

Abstract

In this paper we estimate the best responses of soccer clubs to the choices of other clubs in Spanish and English leagues over the period 1994–2004. We find that choices are more closely approximated by win maximization than by profit maximization in both leagues. We examine club characteristics that might explain variations in choices between Spanish clubs.
