This year the topic of the Conference is a tribute to two of the pioneers in the field of economics of the sport, with two facts that they did 50 years ago. Roger Noll organized in Washington, under the auspices of the Brooking Institution, the first Conference on Sports Economics in 1971 and Peter Sloane, that year, published one of the most relevant articles in the field of sports economics: ‘The Economics of Professional Football: The Football Club as a Utility Maximiser’.

Individuals are invited to submit unpublished communications related to the topic of the Conference

All submissions will be assessed by a scientific committee.

Accommodation and meals during the conference are the responsibility of the organization.

If we cannot organize the Conference in person, we will do it through Teams on Thursday and Friday evening, December 16 and 17.
