The aim of this paper is to interpret and examine the exportefficiency of professional football clubs in the Central Eastern European (CEE) regionwithin the international players’ market. Some clubs in these countries realize higher and higher revenues from transfer activity, which can be interpreted as export of football clubs. The study investigates correlations between sport success and transfer revenues. CEE clubs produce nearly 100 million EUR profit annually, but there are huge differences between countries and clubs. Championships are also divided: those clubs participating in international tournaments have a powerful advantage compared to the other clubs.
