Brand Scouting: Co-Creation of Value in the Football Manager Community

This paper enhances our understanding of collective value co-creation in the context of brand-centered communities. Our study is based on a netnographic exploration of the Football Manager (FM) game community. We introduce the concept of brand scouting and describe how it extends and goes beyond current theorizations of value co-creation.
