It attempts to identify the fundamental reasons why so few football players in Scotland are from ethnic minorities. The research study covers selected clubs from the Scottish Premier League (SPL) 2. Aim & Objectives The aim of the project is: Try to find reasons - or even hypotheses - as to why so few football players in Scotland are from ethnic minorities. The real difficulty lies indeed not in determining what objectives we need, but in deciding how to set them.
