Sponsoring a Rival Has Benefits Too: a Longitudinal Study of Changes in Fan Attitudes Toward Favored- and Opposing-Team Sponsor Brands
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.
