In this paper we investigate the presence of a relative age effect in the case of Spanish professional football. This effect is measured as the dependence of the probability of a player reaching first division on his month of birth. We first inspect the distribution of players’ months of birth in professional football teams, second, we inspect such distribution for professional coaches and third, try to compare the distribution for players in two different hemispheres, where the cutoff dates that define the cohort that is considered for team formation are the same, but other environmental variables could determine a difference in the distributions. Empirical results based on data set of team rosters from 1928 to 2013 suggest that the relative age effect is present and significant for players and its magnitude seems to be growing in time, while the evidence for coaches is limited and not significant.
