Abstract: By using “Lorenz curve - Gini coefficient” and “standard score” measurement methods, the authors made a measurement comparison on the situation of development of competition balance in the Chinese Super League (CSL) and the Premier League (PL), the revealed the following findings: the curve of competition balance in the CSL fluctuates more significantly, which, to a certain extent, reflects that the stability of the situation of league competition balance is worse; the competition strength of the CSL teams is in a situation of polarization, i.e. the strong becomes stronger, while the weak becomes weaker. By analyzing the two leagues’ competition balance regu-lation means, the authors concluded that based on the purpose “to attract the attention of more fans”, while ensuring team competition strength and club economic strength, the CSL should also change the thinking of restricting for-eign players and salary capping, and create a clean and fair competition environment for attracting the participation of world top players with a high salary, and for cracking down competition fraud and black whistle.
