Abstract
The main purpose of this study is to determine the predictive power of group cohesion and perceived motivational climate for collective efficacy perception in the football teams. This study was performed on 156 players including fifty-nine women and ninety-seven men. Collective Efficacy Scale, The Group Environment Questionnaire and Perceived Motivational Climate Scale in Sports were applied to the participants. Descriptive statistics, Pearson Moments Multiplication Correlation Analysis and Multiple Linear Regression Analysis technique were used in the analysis of the obtained data. The results show that collective efficacy scores have a positive correlation with all subscales of group cohesion and with mastery-oriented motivational climate. The results of the Multiple Linear Regression Analysis indicated that the group's individual attractiveness-task dimension and mastery-oriented motivational climate dimensions are significant predictors of collective efficacy and 23% of the total variance of the collective efficacy score. Findings in the research partially support the hypothesis that task cohesion and mastery-oriented motivational climate are positively associated with collective efficacy.
