Determinants of Sponsorship Fit: a Multilevel Analysis

Sponsorship fit is frequently mentioned and empirically examined as a success factor of sponsorship. While sponsorship fit has been considered as a determinant of sponsorship success, little knowledge exists about the antecedents of sponsorship fit. In the present paper, individual and firm-level antecedents of sponsorship fit are examined in a single hierarchical linear model. Results show that sponsorship fit is influenced by the perception of benefits, the firm’s regional identification, sincerity, relatedness to the sponsored activity, and its dominance. On a partnership level, results show that contract length contributes to sponsorship fit while contract value is found to be unrelated.
