APPLICATION OF THE LIST OF STRESSFUL SITUATIONS FOR ARBITRATION (LISEA) IN FOOTBALL REFEREES
The objective of the work is to analyze the behavior of the List of Stressful Situations for Arbitration (LISEA), developed in basketball referees, when it is applied to soccer referees. A total of 111 football referees have participated, belonging to both the Technical Committee of Referees of Huelva (CA-Huelva) and Seville (CA-Seville). The test evaluates the intensity and emotional directionality related to contextual cues, in the previous moments and during the encounter. The instrument showed high reliability in the intensity condition of emotional changes (.879 before the match and .908 during the match) and directionality (.927 before the match and .947 during the match). The results indicate that the different sources of perceived stress influence significantly and differently according to the time point, with a negative correlation between the presence of informant and presence of the media and the partner of arbitration and the years of experience of the football referees. In the directionality significant correlations were found in "position occupied in the league" and "companion of arbitration". The incidence was significantly higher before the match than during the match, so there is a temporary condition.
