Greatness really does come from everywhere.

In the 2023/24 Premier League season, 68 nationalities are represented across all 20 clubs, underscoring the expansive geographic diversity of the League and its players.

From 6 to 15 April, the Premier League is commemorating its No Room For Racism campaign having unveiled its three-year progress update to the No Room For Racism Action Plan.

The initiative addresses discrimination while championing equality, diversity, and inclusion as integral components of the action plan.

Since the formation of the Premier League in 1992, a total of 123 nationalities have featured in the League with Syria and Guatemala being the most recent additions. Brighton & Hove Albion’s Mahmoud Dahoud now represents Syria after playing for Germany and former Cardiff City player Nathaniel Mendez-Laing received a call-up for Guatemala in 2023.

Unsurprisingly, England tops the list of countries represented, with 1,683 players comprising 35 per cent of the 4,807 players who have played for a Premier League club since 1992.

Examining the player demographics across continents, Europe leads with the highest number of players, comprising 79.1 per cent (3,803), followed by Africa with 8.2 per cent (396). South America closely trails behind with 6.3 percent (304), while North and Central America have contributed 4.2 percent (201) of players. Oceania follows with 1.3 percent (60) of players, and Asia rounds off the list with 0.9 percent (43) of players.

The geographically smallest nation represented by any Premier League player is Gibraltar with an area of 6.7 km2.
