The objective of the study was anthropometric and physiological variable as predictor of playing ability of university male football players.
For the purpose of study, sixteen male university football players were selected. Football playing ability was selected as a dependent variable and anthropometric and physiological variable was considered as Independent Variable. The football playing ability was measured by judges rating and anthropometric and physiological variable were measured by anthropometric and physiological kit. To find out the significant relationship Pearson's Product Moment correlation and find out the joint contribution multiple correlations was used and find out prediction multiple regression equation was used. The level of significance was set at .05 levels.
Results: Football performance was found significantly correlated with calf girth, resting heart rate, vital capacity, diastolic blood pressure at 0.05 level of significance and multiple correlations to anthropometric variables are 0.799 and physiological variables are 0.904.
