The objective of the study was to verify the extent to which unpaid work and ownership are associated with low perception of Subjective Social Status (SSS) in soccer players. A total of 152 male athletes with a mean age of 16.2 (SD = 1.69), belonging to Sub 15 (n = 45), Sub17 (n = 46) and Sub 20 (n = 49) of two professional clubs in the Santa Catarina State – Southern Brazil, participating in the 2nd division of the Brazilian National Championship. It is concluded that the Club entitlement is the main explanatory variable for the lower SSS for younger (sub 15 and sub 17 categories), and that whether or not receives salary becomes an important predictor of low perception with SSS when athletes getting older (Category Sub 20).
