Leisure Activity and Subjectivity Development in Football Fans

731

Abstract

This research was aimed at studying the correlation between leisure activities and subjective characteristics in football fans. Sixty young men aged 20—25 years, half of whom were football fans, participated in the research. The influence of their leisure activities on the development of certain personality qualities was studied. Intergroup comparison showed that leisure activity was attractive for every person in the sample. Football fans have a clearer understanding of their life and goals (p < 0,05), of the ability to control their own lives (p < 0,01), they display a wider range of behaviour (p < 0,01) and are more active, independent and self-sufficient (p < 0,01). They put their own energy into practice through a certain type of leisure activities carried out under the sign of the most popular sport in the world, and drawing support from their reference group, they get the possibility of self-actualization and self-determination in early adulthood.
