Abstract [en]

Football is the most exerted sport worldwide and can arguably be considered as a major industry on its own, where the English Premier League stands out as the most popular league in the world. This thesis examines what factors that generate utility, given the assumption that clubs are utility maximization units, for the individual club in the English Premier League. Where final position is of utmost interest. For this analysis, ordered logit and multinomial logit regressions are performed through the usage of 180 observed final positions between the years of 2009-2017. Although this thesis focuses on the club’s individual utility, socio-economic utility tends to appear as a consequence when producing sports. Several parameters are discovered to have a significant and substantial impact on clubs’ final position and thus their utility.
