Sportway toward sport event consumption

Filo, Kevin, Funk, Daniel, & Neale, Larry (2008) Sportway toward sport event consumption. In James, J, Morgan, M, & Summers, J (Eds.) Proceedings of Sport Marketing Association 6th Annual Conference, 17-19 July, Gold Coast, QLD.


Research has lead to a proliferation of multi-attribute scales to understand the motives for sport event attendance. The large number of potential motives, coupled with the long questionnaires needed to measure them, creates challenges for sport marketing research in natural populations. This research brings parsimony to the study of sport consumer behaviour by developing and testing a core set of five SportWay facets of motivation. Results provide guidance to sport marketing professionals and academics in survey development decisions related to selecting the most appropriate motives and items.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
