The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors affecting the incidence of collusion in Iranian football. The present study is descriptive-correlational in terms of its purpose. The statistical population (limited and uncertain) of the study consisted of all managers and experts, coaches, referees and athletes of the Premier League, who were selected through purposive sampling (172 persons). The validity of the researcher-made questionnaire was confirmed by experts (n = 11). Its reliability was calculated using Cronbach's alpha test (0.938) and combined reliability. Structural equation modeling with PLS3 and SPSS24 software was used for data analysis and model fit. The results of the path analysis showed that the causes and drivers of collusion have a significant effect on the behavior of actors and agents of collusion, methods and tools of collusion and the consequences and consequences of collusion. Factors of collusion methods and tools also had a significant effect on the behavior of actors and agents of collusion and the consequences and consequences of collusion. Also the behavior of actors and actors of collusion had a significant effect on the results and consequences of collusion. Finally, the effect of all the mediating variables on the research was also significant. According to the results of this study, it can be said that the model presented in this study can be a good roadmap for identifying the factors influencing collusion formation in Iranian soccer sport in order to prevent these behaviors.According to the results of this study, it can be said that the model presented in this study can be a good roadmap for identifying the factors influencing collusion formation in Iranian soccer sport in order to prevent these behaviors
