Titel: Financial Fair Play – En studie om hur en ekonomisk reglering påverkar konkurrensen

 

Bakgrund och problem: Financial Fair Play implementerades i syfte att förbättra europeiska professionella fotbollsklubbars dåliga ekonomiska situation genom att skydda klubbarna mot överskuldsättning. Forskare argumenterar teoretiskt att Financial Fair Play kommer påverka konkurrensbalansen, men praktiskt är detta inte prövat.

 

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie att undersöka om en påverkan i konkurrensbalansen efter implementeringen av en ekonomisk reglering, beror på regleringen eller om det finns andra förklaringar.

 

Metod: Vi har genomfört en kvantitativ studie där vi testat studiens syfte genom olika mått på konkurrens samt flera olika statistiska analyser.

 

Slutsatser: Vi lyckades med denna studie konstatera att konkurrensbalansen försämrats i de fyra största europeiska fotbollsligorna, efter implementeringen av Financial Fair Play. Dock kunde vi inte påvisa att Financial Fair Play påverkat konkurrensbalansen. Utan det finns andra faktorer som har påverkat konkurrensbalansen. Anledningen till detta kan vara att det ekonomiska regelverket är relativt nytt och inte nått sin fulla effekt.

Abstract [en]

Background and problem: Financial Fair Play was implemented in purpose to

improve European professional football clubs’ poor financial situation by protecting the

clubs against overinvestment's. Researchers argue theoretically that Financial Fair Play

will affect competitive balance, but practically this is not tested.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the impact of

competitive balance after implementation of economic regulation, depends on the

regulation or if there are other explanations.

Method: We have performed a quantitative study in which we tested the study´s

purpose through different measures of competition and several statistical analyzes.

Conclusions: We did succeed to prove that the competitive balance worsened in the

four major European football leagues, after the implementation of Financial Fair Play.

However, we could not substantiate that the Financial Fair Play affected the competitive

balance. Because there are other factors that have affected. One reason could be that the

Financial Fair Play are relatively new and may not reach its full effect.
