The Closed Basketball league : a study of how the Swedish Basketball league´s international competitiveness can be improved  (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

Den Svenska Basketligan är en av få europeiska nationella ligor (oavsett sport) som tillämpar det stängda seriesystemet inom lagidrott. Sedan säsongen 92/93 har den högsta svenska ligan i basket varit stängd och upp- och nedflyttning har vilat på framförallt ekonomiska skäl, och inte sportsliga. Detta är väldigt ovanligt i Europa och i akademisk litteratur görs en tydlig uppdelning mellan europeisk och amerikansk idrottsstruktur. En faktor som bidrar till att göra ligans karaktär stängd är att mästarlagen och övriga topplags deltaganden i europeiska och regionala sammanhang är oregelbundna.

I uppsatsen tillämpas ett systemteoretiskt perspektiv som grund och teorier om konkurrens och kompetensutveckling används som stödteorier. 5 spelare, varav 3 med internationell erfarenhet,2 coacher samt en basketfokuserad skribent ger i uppsatsen deras synpunkter på hur ligans struktur påverkar deras och ligans internationella konkurrenskraft.

Studiens resultat pekar på att det finns stora möjligheter till en förbättrad internationell konkurrenskraft, men att det krävs förändringar i strukturen och synen på vad basketligan har för syfte.

Abstract [en]

The Swedish Basketball League is one of few European national leagues (regardless of sport)that have a closed league structure in team sports. Since the 92/93 season, the highest Swedish league in basketball has been closed and the promotion and relegation has rested primarily on economic grounds, and not results. This is very rare in Europe and in academic literature a clear distinction is made between European and American sports structure. One factor that contributes to the closed nature of the league is that the champion- and other top team's participation in European and regional context is irregular. The paper applies a systems theory perspective and theories of competition and competence building are used as supporting theories. Five players, including three with international experience, two coaches and a basketball-focused chronicler give their views on how the league's structure affects their, and therefore the leagues international competitiveness. The study results indicate that there is a high potential for improved international competitiveness, but that change is needed in the structure and perception of what the Swedish basketball league has for purpose.
