This paper examines the locational decision of sports franchises. Sports teams compete against each other to attract fans, both within and between leagues. We model franchise choices around a circle to examine how location affects the win probabilities of each team and the impact of new entry on fan interest and profits. We examine both symmetrical and asymmetrical contests.
