The purpose of the study was to be aware of the types of leisure activity of the college students and to investigate factors for choosing the internet sports, and then to examine the effects of these factors on the consumption of the internet sports. A total of 412 college students participated in this study. The results of this study were as follows: 1) There was difference in the leisure type between male and female college students. 2) The amount of leisure time associated with sports of male college students was statistically greater than one of female college students. 3) The leisure time spent for the sports media of male college students was statistically greater than one of female college students. 4) The leisure time spent for the sports media of college students was prioritized for the TV, followed by the internet, newspapers, and the radio. 5) The results of the factor analysis indicated that the factors influencing choice of the internet sports consisted of the indirect experience, information collection, and accessibility. 6) Only information collection out of these factors positively influenced the increase of consumption of the internet sports. Above results could be evidence for that the internet is very important area for the sports consumption.
