Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

9 Scopus citations


Reilly and Witt (1995) examined the role of race in determining English football transfer prices. The aim of this article is to update their work with new and later data on productivity of football players. Using data from the 2001-2002 English league season, a transfer price equation is estimated to establish if equally productive black players command lower transfer prices. The evidence suggests they do not.
