Abstract
The main objective of this study was to examine ice hockey clubs with a limited budget from different European top ice hockey leagues and compare the management styles of those clubs. The ability to operate under the constraints of a limited budget served a vital role in the comparison process. An interview was conducted with one professional ice hockey club from the Finnish Liiga. The interview questions were asked from the club manager of this club. The data analysis focused on comparing the answers of the club manager to previously identified hypotheses and finding differences and similarities from the answers. The findings were concluded after the data analysis. Implications for international business as well as limitations to the study were discussed. Finally, recommendations for future research were identified.
