||The purpose of this thesis is to investigate how the revenue sharing rule affects competitive balance between teams in a group professional contest.|
Szymanski and K´esenne (2004) asserts that the more average revenue sharing the more uneven competitive balance.
However, in the model, the revenue generated from the home match is determined only by win percentage of the home team.
In addition to that, the thesis considers impacts of the total talent investments by the matching teams on the revenue.
It finds out that, given congenital conditions to generate revenue,
it may result in a situation that the more average revenue sharing the more even competitive balance,
as long as the impact parameter of the total talent investments is over a threshold.
Of course, the parameter space that supports the result varys with the degree of congenital asymmetry to generate revenue between the teams.
