The interdependence of domestic and international success: the case of the UEFA Champions League
Juan Moreno-Ternero () and
No 13927, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers
This article explores interdependence of domestic and international success in sports where leading clubs enter international competitions while competing in their domestic leagues. Taking as starting point the success of Spanish football teams in the UEFA Champions League during the 2008-2018 decade, we provide a stylized game-theoretical model in which national competitions determine the level of competitive balance therein. We rationalize the hypothesis that intermediate levels of competitiveness within domestic competitions are instrumental in achieving international success.
