The study was carried out to compare the emotional maturity status between medalist and non-medalist school, college and club level football players. This comparison will also provide baseline information and knowledge of emotional maturity among football players. Sample of three hundred (N=300) football players were taken as subjects and club level football players. Emotional Maturity Scale (EMS) of 48 questions prepared by Singh and Bhargava was administered to record the response of emotional maturity. The t-test was applied with S.P.S.S. to see the significant difference between medalist and non-medalist school, college and club level football players. Further ANOVA was applied to see the significant difference among mean scores of medalist football player of schools, colleges and clubs. The findings of this study reveal that t-values 3.01 and 3.16 of School and Club level football players respectively found significant in favour of medalist players. Whereas t-value 0.44 of College level medalist and non-medalist football players found insignificant with regard to emotional maturity. The results partially supported that medalist football players are having better emotional maturity level as compare to their counter partner´┐Żs non-medalist players. On other hand medalist players of schools, colleges and clubs did not differ significantly with regard to emotional maturity.
