Using a deterministic Data Envelopment Analysis Approach, the productive efficiency of 20 teams in the 2000|2001 season is measured and weaknesses of individual teams are disclosed. The sensitivity of results is analyzed with regard to different model specifications and variable combinations. Copyright © 2003 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
