An Introduction to Papers from the European Conference in Sports Economics


  • Wladimir Andreff

    () (University Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne)


A first European Conference in Sports Economics (ECSE) had been convened at the Centre d’Economie de la Sorbonne of the University Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne, September 14-15, 2009. Out of about 60 submitted papers, 32 had been selected and sampled into eight topics and sessions: the economics of professional team sports leagues; economic dimensions of sport participation; sport financing and governance; professional sports and markets; the economic impact of sport mega-events; labor market in professional sports; sport efficiency; and regulation and competitive balance in professional sports leagues. I am grateful, as the conference organizer, to the International Journal of Sport Finance for having called the best papers to be submitted for publication. A few of them applied, of which three have been successfully screened by peer reviewers.
