Methods: This thesis calculates dynamic competiitve balance using the Pearson correlation coefficient. Results: The results show that the first leagues are usually less balanced than the second highest leagues. The result also shows that the first leagues reports an increasing tendency of competitive imbalance. The only exception is the top Polish league.

Specifically the English league, Spanish league, German league, French league and Italian league. Methods: Using the Lorenz curve of the amount of teams on top 3 league positions.

In the sports environment, it is used to measure dynamic competitive balance, especially in the long period of time - during several seasons, when teams advance or relegate between competitions. This thesis deals with the 7 season time horizon before the introduction of Financial Fair Play and 7 seasons after the introduction of FFP.
