    Integrity is a basic element of sporting competitions and a central category of sport economics. While contributions based on the New Institutional Economics ask for extensive regulations to ensure a perfect integrity, practitioners ask for a more moderate regulatory level. To solve this disaccord we follow the question of a theoretical background for regulatory interventions, in order to analyse their level of efficiency. Based on commodity theory, and focusing on subtractability and exclusion, we show that integrity has the characteristics of a common-pool resource. Thus dynamic perception replaces the notion of integrity as a binary construct and consumers are incorporated as endogenous stakeholders. Thereby we can solve the mentioned disaccord. Furthermore, based on these findings we examine both rules and modes of competitions and institutional arrangements of sport governing bodies as categories of maintenance and consumption of the common-pool resource.
