Psychosociology is a combined science between general psychology and sociology, studying psychosocial facts and phenomena, meaning individual, and group psychological phenomena that are born from human interaction and communication in all their social activities, and are manifested as concepts, motivations, attitudes, beliefs, opinions, behaviors, mentalities, traditions, states of mind, feelings. Psychosociology deals with the study of the psychological particularities of people as social-cultural beings, of their conduct inside their social groups, and the study of the particularities of group, collective, and mass psychology, as they manifest as common behaviors and feelings. Sports are a typically social phenomenon, provoking and cultivating psychosocial phenomena, being based on inter-individual relations, group manifestations, preferential attitudes of certain individuals toward others, and of some groups toward others. The group constitutes what we call the social ambiance that determines the individual to adapt to it, and influence it. In sports, the sportive group becomes a reference group, and the team, with its level of involvement, becomes a group of direct affiliation.
