The aim of the study is to determine the motivation of the students of the Faculty of Sports Sciences to participate in e-sports.


The research group of the study consists of volunteer students with an average age of 20.15±2.57 years, studying at the sports science faculties of Tokat Gaziosmanpaşa University, Gazi University, Sivas Cumhuriyet University, and Kırıkkale Universities. The participants consist of a total of 265 university students, 105 of whom are female and 160 of whom are male. The E-Sports Participation Motivation Scale (EKMS) developed by Öz and Üstün (2019) was used to collect data.


As a result of the study, it was found that there was a significant difference in favor of women only in the competence sub-dimension of the gender variable in the motivation to participate in e-sports (p<0.05). while the region of residence, monthly income, and ownership of a personal device had no influence on the motivation to participate in e-sports was achieved.
