TheKaiser-Meyer-Olkin (KMO) value was found to be 0.975 and the sample size was found to be sufficient. As a result of thefactor analysis applied regarding the validity of the scale, three factors representing 78.847% of the total variance wereobtained. The Cronbach Alpha coefficient was calculated as 0.972 as a result of the reliability analysis of the 22-item scale. Itcan be said that the Participation Motivation Scale for E-Sports (PMSES) is a valid and reliable data collection tool that canmeasure the participation motivation of the individuals who do E-Sports
