This research aimed to find the motivations and appeal of fantasy sports in today’s society. Research has found that there are various types of motivations that lead a person to participate in a fantasy sports league. The more frequent motivations are for intrinsic, or internal, purposes. Past research has looked at males, but this study will use a survey to look at both males and females within the Saint John Fisher College undergraduate population. The results further clarified the reasons for participation in fantasy sports. Males showed that they had more reasons why they participate in fantasy sports, while females routinely showed one reason or two at most. Regardless of gender, the most frequently cited reason for participation was for the friends/sense of community component.
