Referees are one of the human resources of any sports activity. The way judges are prepared physically and psychologically, such as motivation and mental skills, can solve many problems. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between motivation and exercise addiction in football referees. This research is a type of post-event descriptive-correlation research, and in terms of its purpose, it is in the field of applied research. The statistical population included all active football referees who judged in the country in the season of 2020-2021. Out of 1440 active referees in the country, 324 referees (52 women and 272 men) voluntarily participated in this study. To determine the level of exercise addiction, the short form list of exercise addiction was used, and to determine the level of sports motivation, the 6 sports motivation scale questionnaire was used. Based on the obtained results, the correlation between exercise addiction with the subscales of intrinsic motivation, mixed regulation, self-accepting regulation, interjected regulation and external regulation was significant (P<0.05) and the correlation between exercise addiction and demotivation was significant. It was not (P=0.333). It was also found that the relationship between sports motivation and exercise addiction in male and female football referees is significant (F=57.847). The feeling of pleasure as an internal motivation and the referee's choice for the next games due to good judgment as an external motivation, leads the referee to perform more sports exercises, which leads to the emergence of symptoms of exercise addiction. Therefore, both intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation have a significant relationship with soccer referees' practice addiction.
