Using data from the 2019/2020 Serie A season, this paper finds evidence for racial wage discrimination in Italian soccer. Notably, in my pooled regression, I find that non-white players receive a log-wage premium of 16.18% relative to white players, all else constant. When running separate underlying regressions by race, I find that non-white players also receive a significant additional premium based on years of experience (age). Finally, using an Oaxaca (1973) Decomposition, I find that 28-42% of the differences in wages between non-white and white players is due to discrimination.
