Article
This study examines the effect of football teams’ distance covered and number of intensive runs (>20 km/h) on referees’ card-awarding behavior and their performance evaluation. The empirical analysis uses data from the German Bundesliga (2011–2018), yielding a final sample of n = 2,130 observations on a match-game day basis. Card-awarding behavior...

The physical health of individuals is degenerating worldwide. The decrease in sporting activities among young people appears critical, as most life habits evolve during childhood. Among others, the rising share of media consumption among children is thought to be a primary determinant of the decline in demand for sports participation. Consequently,...
Article
The identification of relevant effects is challenging in Big Data because larger samples are more likely to yield statistically significant effects. Professional sport teams attempting to identify the core drivers behind their follower numbers on social media also face this challenge. The purposes of this study are to examine the effects of game ou...
Article
While the birthday effect has been widely studied in the economics and sport literature, this study introduces the concept of the ‘real’ birthday effect. It holds that birthday celebrations yield fatigue, which negatively affect running performance. The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of players’ birthdays on post-birthday running pe...

Pull effects in attention from smaller leagues towards bigger leagues have been under discussion for some time. Nevertheless, causal empirical evidence on such attention interception is non-existent, and the suspension of sport leagues during the COVID-19 lockdown provides a perfect context for examination. The purpose of this study is to test whet...

Sport clubs offer marginal substitutable services and thus achieve strong emotional ties with their customers and fans. If sport clubs need financial support from their fans via a bond, the behavior of these investors might differ from that of less tied-in bond investors. The degree of fan involvement might be a decisive factor. Therefore, we use s...
Article
This study examines how running performance (intensive runs, total distance covered) of football teams in previous games impacts betting markets as it relates to expected win probability. Theoretically, bookmakers could interpret team's running performance as effort or fatigue, with sports science studies suggesting that distance covered reflects e...

Purpose of the research Special product displays in prominent in-store are expected to increase sales of the products they contain. Opposite to the rich existing literature on the impact of product in-store displays, we investigate the case of total product relocation instead of using the display location as an additional sales spot (secondary loca...

Zusammenfassung Aufgrund zahlreicher ökonomischer Besonderheiten des Fußballmarktes ist der Umgang mit insolventen Fußballclubs durchaus komplex. Als eine Reaktion auf diese Besonderheiten agieren Fußballverbände mit „Sonder-Insolvenzklauseln“, um den sportlichen Wettbewerb zu sichern. Studien attestieren diesen Verbandsregularien jedoch einen teil...

Research question: Fans’ perception that sponsors are a financial need illustrating the increased commercialisation in sports is not always aligned with their view of a club’s culture. This perceived imbalance represents a challenge in the online marketing strategies of sports clubs. When club managers decide on the content of online social media p...

Work breaks are known for positively influencing employees’ psychologically and physiologically. Thus far, only limited research regarding the importance of precise work-break activities has been conducted, which becomes crucial to an employer when deciding on investing in additional work-break activities. Therefore, in this study, we investigate w...

Residential support is one key factor that increases the probability of a positive outcome of mega events. Especially, pre-event support seems important, since hosting the event often requires public consensus. Within the discussion of determinants of pre-event support, the distance between a resident’s home (district) and the event area has been n...

We investigate changes in effort investment of employees who still fulfill a contract with their current employer but already signed a follow‐up contract with a new employer (employer‐to‐employer change). Because effort and outside contract assignments are hard to measure in firms, we use running data from professional football (n = 26,577) to prox...

Increases in student mobility were goals of the Bologna-process by which the transition from bachelor to master studies was introduced. In the selection process, German higher education institutions are willing to select the most suitable applicants in order to maximize the quality and quotas of graduations.

The study investigates differences in people’s attitudes towards empowerment among generations and other demographic variables as there are only few insights available so far. Therefore, a combination of a hierarchical and a non-hierarchical cluster analysis is used, leading to two clusters termed ‘empowered employees’ and ‘less empowered employees...

This study investigates whether firms are willing to pay higher wages to workers who demonstrate consistent performance than to those whose performance is more volatile. A formal model reflects a production technology view, assuming the law of diminishing marginal product. This model suggests that a more consistent worker produces higher expected o...

Obwohl die sportökonomische Grundlagenliteratur aus der Sicht eines allumfassenden Spielermarktes argumentiert, offenbart sich bei genauerer Betrachtung des deutschen Fußballmarktes, dass sich mehrere separate Teilmärkte identifizieren lassen. Für den Aufbau des vorliegenden Beitrags soll sich an einer am klassischen Produktlebenszyklus angelehnten...

Due to an increasing implementation of 360-degree multirater feedback in corporations, possible biases and therefore the validity of intragroup peer evaluations systems are challenged. Building on Byrne's (1971) similarity-attraction approach, we hypothesize that individual performance evaluations are better for those who belong to the intra-group...

Previous research has examined the effect of changes in upper management positions on actual organizational performance; however, the influence of leadership changes on performance expectations has been largely neglected. This gap in the literature is surprising given that failure to meet expectations leads to dismissal. The purpose of the present...

Investments in elite sport and sport events are often justified by governments with the trickle-down effect. Theoretically, this effect implies that people are inspired by sporting success, the personality of athletes, and hosting elite sport events to practice sport. However, previous research had difficulties in measuring, modeling, and providing...

By applying semi-parametric duration analysis with competing risks to a dataset of 17 youth rosters, each of them winner of either DFB-U19-Bundesliga or DFB-Youth-Cup between 1998/1999 and 2010/2011, the following paper tests some predictions that...

Die Tatsache, dass Spitzensportler Spitzengehälter verdienen ist bekannt. Im Zentrum der wissenschaftlichen Debatten stehen die beidermaßen anerkannten und konkurrierenden Thesen von Sherwin Rosen (1981) und Moshe Adler (1985). Obwohl beide Autoren plausible Argumentationen liefern, bestehen nach wie vor Erklärungsdefizite dahingehend, welcher der...
