Does Consumers’ Product Involvement With Sponsors’ Products Matter in Sponsorship?

It was assumed that sponsorship would be more effective for low involvement products among highly identified fans. The result showed that only fan identification was an influencing factor on sponsorship effects, but not product involvement.
