The present study seeks to conduct a Structural equation modeling to examine the impact of intellectual capital on the organizational performance of sports federations. The method is correlational and survey. The population consists of all sports federations. A sample of 242 individuals were selected by Morgan's table and the random sampling method. The research utilizes Bontis' (2007) intellectual capital questionnaire and Yang's (2004) organizational performance questionnaire as measurement tools. The surveys' validity was verified by 8 professors specializing in sports management. The reliability of the research questionnaires was assessed using Cronbach's alpha coefficient, yielding values of 0.83 and 0.91 for the relevant questionnaires. The data analysis employed Pearson's correlation test and structural equation modelling. The GFI index of 0.95, AGFI index of 0.96, NFI index of 0.97, CFI index of 0.95, and RMSEA index of 0.031 all suggested that the structural modelling fit. The findings indicated that intellectual capital, as evidenced by a beta coefficient of 0.63, was a reliable predictor of organizational performance. The overall findings indicate that the augmentation of intellectual capital and its various components within the firm resulted in improved employee performance.
