Evaluation of efficiency of professional football clubs
Krause, Veronika ; Šíma, Jan (advisor) ; Voráček, Josef (referee)
Title: Evaluation of efficiency of professional football clubs Objectives: The aim of this thesis is to identify the efficiency of English Premier League football clubs in the 2015/16 to 2018/19 seasons using two selected data envelopment analysis models and compare the results. Subsequently, to define what optimisation of inputs and outputs would lead to maximum efficiency. Methods: The method of data envelopment analysis, based on linear programming, was used to determine the effectiveness. 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
