Basketball referees have to decide quickly and accurately under stress in a limited time and their decisions will affect the results of the match. Therefore, it is important to evaluate the performances of the referees and give them feedback about their performances. In the current performance evaluation system of the basketball referees, criteria weights are considered as equal. In this study, the weights of the performance evaluation criteria were determined with the help of AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) method considering the criteria will have different importance degree in the evaluation process. Then, the ranking of the basketball referees according to their performances was obtained by using WASPAS (Weighted Aggregated Sum Product Assessment) method. In this paper, it is aimed to propose a Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) approach based on the integration of AHP and WASPAS methods to evaluate the performances of basketball referees.
