Abstract: 

Motivation is a one of the important psychological traits that has considerable implications on programs whose objectives are identification and cultivation of young, skilled performers, but limited researches have been directed toward defining the competitive specific motivational profile of elite soccer players. Thus, the purpose of this survey was to describe Iranian elite male soccer players' motivational characteristics. Therefore, 61 soccer players of senior, youth U-19 and U-23 national teams who were selected purposively completed the sports attitude inventory. The data were grouped by age and primary position played and analyzed by descriptive statistic. On the basis of results, the motivation to achieve success and avoid failure of these elite players was high and low, respectively. Moreover, senior national team players and midfielders had more competitive motivation than other players.
