Using a data base of the movements of over two thousand professional footballers in the top two divisions of the English Football League between 1969 and 1995, this paper examines the impact on talent distribution through the movement of players after gate-revenue sharing was abandoned in this league. It is found that there is an increased probability that players would move from teams in the second tier of the league to teams in the first tier after gate-sharing was abolished. The authors also find that there is increased probability that players will be transferred within divisions.
