Im Mai 2008 verabschiedete der Fußball-Weltverband (FIFA) eine Resolution zur sogenannten '6+5-Regel'. Nach dieser Regel muss die Anzahl einheimischer Spieler in der Startformation von Vereinsmannschaften im Profifußball stufenweise aufgestockt werden. Über die Reglementierung des Einsatzes ausländischer Spieler wird schon seit Inkrafttreten des sogenannten Bosman-Urteils diskutiert, durch welches der uneingeschränkte Einsatz von Spielern aus EU-Staaten in Vereinsmannschaften erlaubt wurde. Der vorliegende Beitrag untersucht daher empirisch die Auswirkungen der Öffnung des Spielermarktes auf die Leistung der Vereine der ersten Fußball-Bundesliga sowie auf die Heterogenität der Liga und gibt einen Ausblick auf mögliche Auswirkungen für den einheimischen Nachwuchs. -- In May 2008 the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) passed a resolution concerning the so called '6+5-Rule'. According to this rule the number of domestic players in the starting line-up of professional soccer teams has to be increased step by step. The regulation of foreign players is discussed since the commencement of the Bosman-ruling, which permitted inter alia the unrestricted use of foreign players in the squad of sport teams. This paper empirically analyses the effects of the opening of the players' market on the per-formance of the teams in the Bundesliga, the first division of German soccer, as well as the effects on the heterogeneity of the league and looks out on potential effects on domestic up-and-coming players.
