Abstract

Obwohl die Bundesliga in dem potentiell attraktivsten europäischen Fussballmarkt operiert, ziehen ihre Klubs in der Champions League vor allem gegen die Konkurrenten aus der Premier League systematisch den Kürzeren. Weil Überinvestition gerade nicht durch eine Auflösung der betroffenen Klubs bestraft wird, trägt der Turnierwettbewerb im europäischen Fussball den Charakter eines „Zombierennens“. Klubverfassungen beeinflussen dabei ganz ent-scheidend die Möglichkeiten der Turnierteilnehmer, neue Finanzierungsquellen für den Rüs-tungswettlauf zu erschliessen. An einem prominenten Beispiel, den „Geldspritzen“ so genann-ter „Patenonkel“ wird der gegenwärtige Wettbewerbsnachteil der über Vereinsverfassungen kontrollierten Bundesliga-Mannschaften detailliert herausgearbeitet.
