The present study aimed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Managerial Behaviour Instrument, Portuguese ver-sion, for the Brazilian sport federations. The sample was composed of 263 members of federations, including managerial (39.5%), technical (35.1%), executive (20.6%) bodies and others (4.9%). The study used descriptive, reliability and confirm-atory factor analyses. Values of internal consistency for the sub-factors ranged from 0.83 to 0.92, correlation between 0.37 and 0.79, and adequate values for six indices (χ2, χ2/df, CFI, NNFI, SRMR, RMSEA) of the global adjustment of the meas-urement model. Thus, the Portuguese version of the Managerial Behaviour Instrument has acceptable values for its psycho-metric properties that allow researchers to use it to study leadership competencies of sports managers.
