The research was carried out for the purpose of evaluating the factors affecting performances of the Greek referees in Super League and Football League. The research group was composed of 128 referees who actively officiated in the Hellenic Football Federation. All subjects were speakers of Greek and English. They completed a closed-ended questionnaire which was a composite of 14 items. Descriptive statistics and frequencies were used and as a result of the research important facts have been obtained: not only physical but psychological factors do hold a key role on referees’ performance towards excellence; contrary to the common beliefs of everyone (media, spectators, and sports commentators) referees work quite professionally; and educational programs should be evaluated in content for future improvement.Pages: 271-275 | 456 Views 22 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
