Fan motivation and loyalty : extending the Sport Interest Inventory (SII) to the Australian Football League
Neale, Larry & Funk, Daniel (2005) Fan motivation and loyalty : extending the Sport Interest Inventory (SII) to the Australian Football League. In Purchase, Sharon (Ed.) Proceedings of the ANZMAC 2005 Conference : Broadening the Boundaries, 5-7 December 2005, Fremantle, Western Australia.
This study used the Sport Interest Inventory (SII) to examine the motivation of fans attending a game in the Australian Football League. This is the first study to use the SII for professional men’s team sport outside the United States. Confirmatory factor analysis showed the model provided a good fit for the data collected in Australia, and regression analysis revealed that team interest, vicarious achievement, excitement and player interest were the significant factors in predicting and explaining the level of attitudinal loyalty of fans toward their favourite team.
