Consumer Socialization and Intergenerational Brand Loyalty in the Context of Soccer

This paper analyzes the intergenerational evangelization of new supporters. Through the ethnography of two rival football clubs in Brazil, we show how engaged supporters transmit the club mythology through ordinary and extraordinary rituals. We discuss the implications of this process for studies on intergenerational influences, brand loyalty, and family identity.
