The purpose of this research is to prioritize the factors and components affecting the use of green architecture in the sports structure of Iran. The type of research is descriptive which was done through a survey. The statistical sample was 185 people and included expert experts in architecture, energy and management of sports venues and spaces. The data collection tool was a standard questionnaire designed based on the green building certification (LEED, 2016). The method of scoring this tool was based on a five-point Likert scale. In order to analyze statistical data, inferential statistics methods were used. Confirmatory factor analysis using Lisrel software was used to check the construct validity of the measuring instrument, and Friedman's ranking test was used to prioritize the research items with the help of SPSS software. It showed that a total of 7 components and 23 items are considered as effective factors. From the point of view of the experts, the component "optimal technology" with a factor of (0.915) has the most importance, and the component "analysis and site selection" with a factor of (0.707) has the least importance in terms of factors affecting green architecture in Iran's sports structure. They assigned themselves. Since the adjusted goodness of fit index was 0.9, as a result, the overall fit is also confirmed.
