Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande studie var att undersöka och jämföra motivationen hos amatör- och elitfotbollsspelare mot bakgrund av ålder, prestationsnivå och attribuering. Följande frågeställningar har besvarats: (1) Skiljer sig motivationen åt mellan elitidrottare och amatöridrottare? (2) Attribuerar elitidrottare och amatöridrottare olika? (3) Påverkar ålder motivationen? Försökspersoner (n=32) i ett amatörlag (n=16) och ett elitlag (n=16) fick fylla i en enkät, uppbyggd av Sport Motivation Scale och Attribution Theory. Ett oberoende t-test och ett korrelationstest utfördes. En signifikant skillnad upptäcktes mellan amatör och elit på kategorierna Inre Motivation och Amotivation. Elitspelare upplever en högre inre motivation och en högre amotivation än amatörspelare. Ett negativt signifikant samband mellan ålder och inre motivation, samt amotivation upptäcktes. Yngre individer upplever en högre grad av inre motivation, men de känner också en större amotivation till sitt deltagande.  Resultatet visar på viktiga faktorer för individens utveckling och deltagande i fotboll.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to compare motivation on amateur and elite football players regarding age, achievement level and attribution. The question of the study was to examine: (1) If motivation differ between amateur and elite players? (2) If the attribution technique is different? (3) Does age affect motivation? Respondents (n=32) from one amateur team (n=16) and one elite team (n=16) filled out a questionnaire constructed of Sport Motivation Scale and Attribution Theory. An independent t-test and a correlation test were performed. A significant difference was discovered between elite and amateur players Inner Motivation and Amotivation. Elite players experience a higher degree of inner motivation and also a higher degree of amotivation than amateurs, to why they play football. A negative correlation between age and inner motivation, and amotivation was discovered. Younger individuals experience a higher degree of inner motivation, but they also feel a higher amotivation to their participation. The result show important factors for the individual development and participation in football.
