The aim of the current research was to design a model of professional ethics for Premier League football clubs. The current research was applied in terms of purpose, in terms of mixed method and structural equation modeling research. The statistical population of the research consisted of football federation managers, experts, university professors, media members, football club managers (N=384) who were selected based on Morgan's table by simple random sampling. The data collection tool was a researcher-made questionnaire that was compiled through interviews with experts and experts. The face and content validity of the questionnaire was checked by 10 professors and experts, and the reliability of the tool was obtained by Cronbach's alpha coefficient. To analyze the collected data, the structural equation model was used by the partial least square (PLS) method, and the construct validity was also confirmed. According to the values of the significant coefficients obtained with 95% confidence from the structural model, the causal factors, interactions, and consequences had a significant effect on the central phenomenon (professional ethics) that the component of causal conditions includes indicators (structure, law, education, modeling , institutionalizing ethics, political intervention); The interaction component includes indicators (lack of transparency, weak supervision, behavior of officials and encouragement and punishment); The outcome component included indicators (developmental outcomes, moral and social improvement outcomes, and damage outcomes). Conclusion: The predictive index indicated that the components of professional ethics have the right power to predict the professional ethics of clubs.
