Abstract

Sports competitions have been used as source for applied studies on individual behavior under pressure. This work evaluates Brazilian refereeing bias in football (soccer) games of Campeonato Brasileiro 2004-2008. The results show that referees systematically favor home teams by setting more extra time in close matches in which home teams are behind. The bias is not exclusively explained by the supporters’ pressure. There are evidences of referees’ favoritism only in small stadiums, with a stronger bias in more opaque games.
