Gillingham Football Club said that McCammon is the first of "many thousands of staff of various race, religion and creed" to have ever considered a claim on the grounds of discrimination.
Mark McCammon said he was ordered to come into the ground amid "treacherous", snowy driving conditions while some white players were told they were not required.
He also said the club tried to "frustrate him out" by refusing to pay private medical bills to help him regain his fitness following injury.
Instead, he claims he was offered the same operation on the NHS rather than privately, a move he described as "completely out of character" for a Football League club, and that he was fined two weeks' wages when he paid a visit to a private consultant.
In contrast, the former Charlton, Swindon, Millwall and Brighton player said, a white team-mate was flown to Dubai for treatment by an eminent physiotherapist at the club's expense.
Mark McCammon, 33, was unfairly dismissed by Gillingham Football Club after suffering racial victimisation, a tribunal has ruled.
The player had alleged that he and other black players were discriminated against by the club.
Responding to the Ashford Employment Tribunal's ruling, Gillingham FC said the club is "hugely disappointed, in fact staggered, by this decision."
It went on: "As an organisation we are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate against, nor victimise our staff."
