Team Diversity and Performance: Evidence from International Sport Leagues
The current research aims at evaluating the impact of cultural diversity of teams of the international sports leagues (the KHL, the VTB United League) on the team performance. The research is based on the data from 8 regular seasons of hockey and 6 regular seasons of basketball since these sports require the highest interpersonal interaction between team players. This study fills the gap regarding the diversity-performance nexus in Russia. In the empirical test regression models are estimated using OLS with fixed effects for teams and seasons; the basic diversity metric is HHI. The main finding is that it is proved that cultural team diversity is an essential factor of boosting team performance both in hockey and basketball.
