ABSTRACT
The article presents an econometric analysis of the changing dynamics of the competitive market for professional soccer players in Germany from 1963-1964 to 2002-2003. The article mentions several changes that may have had affected the careers of soccer players, including the increased number of clubs from 16 to 18 and the increased number of allowed player substitutions during a match in the 1968-1969 and 1995-1996 seasons. The analysis is based on a longitudinal data set from the German Bundesliga covering a 40 year period. The dataset comprises all players in any of the Bundesliga seasons 1963-1964 to 2002-2003.
