This study was conducted to compare the nutritional status of soccer and futsal players. This study was carried out in a futsal and a soccer club in Ankara who competed at the top of their league during the 2017-2018 seasons. 14 players from futsal club and 14 players from soccer club participated in the study. In order to assess participantsʼ nutritional status, 3-day food consumption and physical activity records were taken on training day, match day and non-training day. Within the same week, fat mass, body mass, percentage of body fat were measured by anthropometric measurements. The mean age of the soccer players is 26.0±4.00 years and the mean age of futsal players is 24.5±4.60 years. The frequency of using nutritional ergogenic aids was found to be 42.9% in soccer players. Nevertheless, none of the futsal players used nutritional ergogenic aids. The mean energy intake of futsal players (3278.6±449.68 kcal) was higher than soccer players (2863.7±190.31 kcal) (p<0.05). There were statistically significant differences between the groups in terms of CHO (%TE), protein (%TE), vegetable protein, animal protein, fat (g), fat (%TE), fiber, vitamin E, tiamin, riboflavin, niasin, vitamin C, vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc (p<0.05).
