Relative Age Effect (RAE) refers to the differences in age between individuals grouped together for some performance activity. This study aimed to track the existence of RAEs in Brazilian football players throughout history. The sample consisted of 202951 players registered in the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF). The individuals in the sample were born from 1921 to 1996 and played football professionally. The players were grouped into blocks of years, according to the years of their birth.
