The dictator's great goals

Last April the 13th, three of our investigators signed an article titled “Democracy and Football” and published on Social Science Quarterly, an important American journal.

The paper talks about the influence of fascism and communism on the winners of football championships. The Lago-Peñas brothers mix their knowledge of sports, politics science and economics to explore to what extent political regimes affected the competitive balance in domestic football leagues. Relying on data from around 50 European countries and over 2,000 domestic leagues, they showed that the percentage of league competitions won by the most successful club in the country is substantially lower in democracies than in non-democracies.
