Background: In recent years, the Six Sigma Methodology has been primarily applied to the enhancement of performance. The purpose of this study was to implement Six Sigma Management Models in the Turkish National Soccer Team. Material and methods: 24 matches of the Turkish National Soccer Team constituted the sample of research. The DMAIC method was used in this study. For statistical analysis of research data, IBM SPSS 18.0 for Windows and Minitab 17 statistical software program were used. As statistical techniques, brainstorm, fishbone, chi-square correlation analysis, Spearman correlation test, process capability analysis and control charts were used, which were the six sigma tools. The numerical values obtained were tested at P < 0.01 and P < 0.05 significance levels. Results: As a result of the research, a statistically significant correlation was found among the match outcomes of the Turkish National Soccer Team and the game formation (P = 0.04), the positive shoot rate (P = 0.03), the positive defence rate on the first zone (P = 0.00) and the positive defence rate on the second zone (P = 0.00). As a result of the improvement, the z bench value for the positive defence rate on the first zone was increased from 0.47 to 0.59.
