Methods: For this thesis, quantitative data from the tennis facility's financial statements from 2018 to 2021 was used. Horizontal and vertical analysis of the balance sheet and profit and loss, difference and ratio analysis was performed. Lastly, a bankruptcy model was calculated. Microsoft Excel was used to calculate and analyze the data. Results: The analysis confirmed that running a business in a sports environment is challenging.

There were chosen two approaches to this method, each with a different set of inputs and outputs, both assuming variable returns to scale and focusing on inputs. Results: Two clubs were identified as being maximally effective throughout the whole period. Some relegated clubs were also rated as 100% efficient. The optimization of the variables primarily proposed a reduction of inputs. Keywords: football, efficiency, data envelopment analysis, decision making unit, DEA-BCC
