The conference venue was not chosen by chance; the final of the Europa League Chelsea - Arsenal was held on the same dates in Baku. The conference left Russia for the first time - the previous two also took place during major football tournaments: in 2017 in Kazan during the Confederations Cup, in 2018 in St. Petersburg during the World Cup.A distinctive feature of the conference has traditionally been the opportunity for young scientists to speak with recognized experts in football and economics. Along with prominent experts, young scientists from NES, HSE, Khazar University, Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosova, Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation, University of Reading, Ca 'Foscari University in Venice, Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy, Azerbaijan State University of Economics and others.The conference program consisted of seven sessions dedicated to economics and football: “Labor Market”, “Mega-Events”, “Finance”, “Development”, “Performance”, “Demand for Football”, “Organizational Issues”.The conference was opened by the leaders of the Khazar University, representatives of the Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan, NES President Professor Shlomo Weber
and Deputy Vice Rector of the Higher School of Economics, Head of the Lab on Sports Studies, Associate Professor Dmitry Dagaev.
Dennis Coates, a professor of economics at the University of Maryland, introduced students to the political and economic features of major football events and asked, “What kind of competitions do we call mega events?” By what criteria can they be determined? ”The professor gave a list of measurable and immeasurable indicators that are influenced by a major competition, touched on what happens after the competition, and suggested several directions for further research: measuring the relationship between tourism and national GDP, long-term the impact on tourist flows and the effects of short, but relatively large competitions (such as the Europa League final).
Anna Bykova introduced the audience to the results of her study, conducted by a certain expert with D. Coates, on the influence of institutional factors (various tax rates and labor market regulation at the state level) on the success of football clubs in the American League of MLS. In the future, Anna plans to conduct a similar study for the Russian Premier League.

The conference also presented a lot of interesting studies on the economics of football, prepared by young scientists, on topics such as “Moneyball in football”, “The impact of the high cost of acquiring a football player on the performance of his speech”, “The impact of major competitions on the image of the host”, “Influence of football tourism on the economies of countries ”,“ The impact of head coaches on the sports results of clubs in the Champions League ”,“ The impact of a complex calendar on the results of teams ”,“ Do football players play better against their former clubs? ”,“ The influence of HR function on club results ”and others.This was the third conference on the economics of football organized by NES and the HSE. The unforgettable event was given by the beauty of the beautiful city of Baku and a visit to the fascinating finals of the Europa League. It was cool! We look forward to continuing next year.
