Keywords:Athletes, Sports, Facilities, Satisfaction
The main objectives of the study were to examine the influence of internal and external factors on the satisfaction level of athletes and to find out the most dominant factors affecting college sports in Government and private colleges in Bahawalpur District, Pakistan. The researcher created 10 hypotheses to examine the objectives of the study. Male and female athletes, government, and private college controlled sport were selected as part of the study. A 20% representative sample was taken from both male and female athletes, but the total population consisting of sports directors from both colleges was taken according to the Gay formula (1985). A representative sample of 100 was selected using a convenient sampling method. A self-development questionnaire was used to collect data. The validation process, test cases and reliability were performed accordingly. The questionnaire was personally distributed to all respondents. The returned responses were analyzed using SPSS version 20 and Excel Micro software. In the first step, the researcher used descriptive statistics that showed the frequency, percentages and averages of the responses. Second, the researcher used unpredictable statistics to examine formulation hypotheses. The results of the study were drawn based on the analysis of the data. The data showed that all internal and external factors are in both --colleges and have had a significant impact on the athletic satisfaction of athletes in Bahawalpur -- colleges in Pakistan (P> 0.05). However, the impact of all internal and external factors was found to be greater in private colleges compared to Government College.
