This paper examined students' perceived use of basic mmathematical knowledge and skills in reading, constructing and interpreting football league tables. To guide the study, three research questions were raised and two hypotheses were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance. The study employed the survey design and the sample size was 190 students: 94 males and 96 females, from ten (10) secondary schools in Edo South Senatorial District of Edo state. A 7 items questionnaire was administered to collect the data. Mean and Standard deviation were used to answer research question one, and the independent sample t-test statistic was used in testing the two hypotheses. The study revealed that students need mathematical knowledge and skills in reading and preparing football league tables. The educational and ethical implications for mathematics education were outlined, and recommendations were made.
