Choosing the legal structure of a sports institution is one of the key decisions that sports managers must make, in part because the legal structure influences the revenue composition of sports institutions. Based on platform theory and property rights theory, this paper suggests that membersÕ associations receive higher sponsorship revenues than private firms. This study empirically confirms this assumption for amateur sports with data from a survey of equestrian sports institutions in Germany.
