The aim of this study is to investigate the perceived stress, sport motivation, trait anger and anger expression in women football players. A total of 38 women footballers participated in the study, 19 in the first league and 19 in the second league. Personal Information Form, Perceived Stress Scale, Sports Motivation Scale and Trait Anger and Anger Expression Scale were used to collect the data. IBM SPSS 21 software was used to evaluate the data, Kolmogorov-Smirnov was used for normality, Levene test was used for variance, statistical significance level was determined as p<0.05, One-way analysis of variance ANOVA and post-hoc Scheffe test was applied. According to the league variable, it was found that there was a statistical difference in the subscales of perceived insufficient self-efficacy, intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, amotivation, trait anger, anger out, and anger control (p<0.05). When the mean scores according to the age variable were examined, a statistically significant difference was observed in the identification subdimension (p<0.05). When the mean scores of the people who live together are examined, there is a statistically significant difference in the intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation subscales (p<0.05). When the score averages are examined according to the sports experience year variable, it was determined that there was a statistically significant difference in the subscales of amotivation and anger control (p<0.05). In the study, only one training effect is examined. The stress levels, motivation and anger levels of women footballers should be checked at the beginning of the league, between the circuit and the beginning of the second half. Similar studies can be done with female athletes from different leagues or branches.
