Sponsoring a rival has benefits too: A longitudinal study of changes in fan attitudes toward favored-and opposing-team sponsor brands
Mahar, Chris & Weeks, Clinton S. (2014) Sponsoring a rival has benefits too: A longitudinal study of changes in fan attitudes toward favored-and opposing-team sponsor brands. Advances in Consumer Research, 42, p. 817.
A longitudinal field experiment examined sports fans’ attitudes toward favored- and opposing-team sponsors across time. Measurements at five timepoints showed fans’ attitudes were more positive toward their favored-team sponsors, but that attitudes improved across time toward both favored-team sponsors and opposing-team sponsors. This occurred regardless of intensity of fan identification.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
