Abstract:   (118 Views)
Background. In recent decades, information technology has become a vital component of various aspects of our lives. The use of information technology in different domains has made the analysis of the level of its acceptance/rejection a significant factor in organizations.
Objectives. The aim of this study was to illustrate the application of the extended technology acceptance model in sports organizations.
Methods. The participants consisted of 350 employees selected from across various Iranian sports organizations. The data were collected according to the perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, attitude (AT), intention to use (IU), technology self-efficacy (TSE), technology anxiety, perceived enjoyment, and user satisfaction for each variable in the study model. A panel of experts determined the face and content validity of the experiment. The Cranach’s alpha coefficient was used to determine the validity.
Results. The results showed that AT, self-efficacy, PU, EOU, and user satisfaction have a meaningful effect on the intention to use information technology. The highest effect was related to AT, and the lowest to user satisfaction.
Conclusion. It can be claimed that when people have a more positive AT toward the use of information technology, they will exhibit beliefs or excitements, which makes it more viable for them to perceive information technology positively, and consequently increase the intention to use it.

• The AT, self-efficacy, PU, and EOU have the most and user satisfaction have the least effect on the decision to use the information technology.
• It is suggested that sports organization for increasing its productivity and efficiency not only emphasize to information technology but make it proportional to organization's need.
• Because of the most effect of AT on intention to use IT, it suggests that these organizations do their plans for creating a positive attitude on acceptance of information technology. This leads to make it easy and user satisfaction's reinforcement information technology in the organization.
