This volume comprises scientific contributions in the context of the 5th annual conference of the European Association of Sports Ecomics (ESEA), which took place in September 2013 in Esbjerg, Denmark. It contains five articles on UEFA's financial fair play regulation in European football, written by internationally rewned sports ecomists like Stefan Szymanski, Joel Maxcy and Sean Hamil. Moreover, a further three chapters deal with football topics like the dismissal of coaches or competitive balance. Furthermore, the ecomics of sports events - the Olympics as well as local events - are analyzed by well-kwn scholars like Wladimir Andreff and Placido Rodriguez. Next to team sports, new developments of the ecomics of individual sports like cycling, ski-jumping and motor-racing are explored.
Oliver Budzinski is Professor of Economic Theory at the Institute of Economics of the Ilmenau University of Technology (Germany).
