This paper analyses the extent of social integration of native and immigrant members of sport clubs, using Esser's (2009) four-dimensional integration concept (n = 780; MAge = 20.62; 38.5 % with migration background). Of particular interest was the influence of socio-demographic, sports-related, and socio-cultural characteristics. Members of the clubs who were first generation were less integrated along three integration dimensions than the native and second- and third-generation immigrant members. Multiple regression analyses demonstrated that some characteristics are significantly related to integration dimensions (membership duration, parental sports club activity, value orientation, bicultural integration attitude) and thus more relevant to social integration than others (identity, nationality).
