This study measured the relative efficiency and productivity change of the Korean professional sport teams using DEA model and Malmquist Index for 2006-2009. The main results of this study can be summarized as follows. First, in case of efficiency of CCR for 2006-2009, the number of efficient professional sport teams(CCR value is one) are two(Daejeon Citizen, Incheon United), three(Daejeon Citizen, Incheon United, FC Seoul), two(Daejeon Citizen, Incheon United), three(Kyungnam FC, Incheon United, FC Seoul) respectively. Second, Malmquist Index representing productivity change for 2006-2009 are 1.035, 0.9658, 1.5331 for Kyungnam FC, 1.2514, 0.8948, 0.9056 for Daegu FC, 1.1768, 0.8620, 0.9722 for Daejeon Citizen, 0.9368, 1.2609, 0.7714 for Incheon United, 1.0000, 1.0000, 1.0000 for FC Seoul, respectively. This result will be used by inefficient professional sport teams to improve inefficiency.
