This led to conduct with numerous scientific research and media's analysis from sport management and economy, and competitive balance studies of one of the dominant fields in terms of scientific and library facilities resources. In this research, a systematic review of the competitive balance has been done and based on this, a conceptual framework is developed.

Available samples were equal with 36 valid scientific references and 51 specialty media subjects. The transcripts tool was related to the content analysis technique. The validity of the tools was approved by the scribes. Conceptual coding and frameworks were used to systematize concepts and components, and the research frameworks was presented in the form of a theoretical system model.
Results: The identified perspectives in the model included the underlying factors, structural factors, strategies, processes and outcomes. The most frequent components in the sources are respectively include: coaches' quality, players' quality, transfer conditions, allocation of funds, sponsors, passionate fans, economic factors and presence of foreign players.
