Abstract:

Background: To compete at the greatest level on the global stage in a sporting event, psychological balance is as crucial as physical condition. Many uncontrolled actions among athletes, such as physical aggressiveness, hostility, hostile and verbal aggression, are common these days. 
Objectives: Both men and women bear equal responsibility. As a result, the purpose of this study is to analyse the amount of violence in Manipur's elite women football players. For this study 17 national level women footballers (age 23±1.52 years, height 161±3.2 cm and body weight 54±4.3 kg) has been participated. 
Material and Methods: The Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire (BPAQ) was used to collect data. The study's findings revealed that all of the participants were aggressive. 53% of the individuals were extremely aggressive. 6% were aggressive, whereas 41% were less aggressive. 
Conclusion: It was discovered that hostile and anger were highly connected with the players' behaviour among the aggressiveness factors (physical aggression, anger, hostile, and verbal aggression). As a result of the findings, it is possible to conclude that psychological training is critical for controlling aggression on the playing field and maintaining game ethics.
