Football in Belgium from centre to semi-periphery: Analyzing the financial ground
AbstractThe problem with Belgian football competition is that in the long run, and as reality shows us in the short term, the contemporary situation will lead to market failures and the elimination of some of the clubs. The solution proposed in this paper is the creation of a new professional competition with fewer teams combined with territorial exclusivity in a centre with a potential number of consumers that reach a certain absolute or relative threshold.
