The main objective of this article is to design a structural equation model to evaluate the predictor variables of professional performance in soccer coaches (PPSC), digital teaching competence (DTC) and professional competences of soccer coaches (PCSC). A sample of 612 coaches was taken from the different training levels of the Valencian Community (FFCV) in Spain, managed by UEFA.. The results of the causal relationship model showed a good overall fit of the model. A statistically significant positive relationship was found to exist with the professional performance of soccer coaches in both the use of digital competencies (DTC) and the professional competence of soccer coaches (PCSC). A statistically significant positive relationship was also observed between the use of digital competencies and the professional competence of soccer coaches. From the results obtained, it can be affirmed that the change generated by UEFA in the training of coaches in emerging technologies increases their professional performance.
