Presently, sports celebrities play more important role in advertising and marketing. For Bush, Martin and Bush’s article, based on customer socialization and previous findings, they make four hypotheses: 1) Teenagers' athlete role model influence is positively related to product switching and complaint behavior; 2) Teenagers' athlete role model influence is positively related to favorable or positive word-of-mouth behavior; 3) Teenagers' athlete role model influence is positively related to brand loyalty and 4) Female teenagers' athlete role model influence is more positively related to (a) product switching and complaint behavior, (b) favorable word-of-mouth behavior, and (c) brand loyalty than male teenagers. After test the hypotheses, they found that 1) teens' athlete role model influence is not significantly related to product switching or complaining behavior; 2) athlete role model influence is positively related to teenagers' favorable word-of-mouth communications; 3) the results show that athlete role model is positively related to teenagers' brand loyalty; and 4) there are no significant differences between male and female members of Generation Y when it comes to athlete role model influence on product switching and complaint behavior. For marketers, they should realize that celebrity sports athletes are important to adolescents when they make brand choices and talk about these brands positively. Moreover, regardless of their public behavior, teenagers do consider athletes as important role models. In addition, females in our sample may spread more positive word-of-mouth about a product or brand that is endorsed by their favorite celebrity athlete than males. Furthermore, females agreed more than males that athlete role models influence them to buy certain brands—this is a key insight for marketers seeking to develop brand loyalty among women at an early age.…...

Assuch, teams can no longer rely on mobilizing fan support and sponsorship capital intheir home market alone. In the same way corporations are guided by a compelling andoriginal idea that forms the basis for their brand strategy, so too must sporting teams.The purpose of this paper is to draw parallels between “conventional” brands like Appleand Disney, and to articulate what sporting teams can learn from those companies inthe management of their own brands. Brand Strategy For Sporting Teams By any definition, sporting teams today are big businesses. Harvard Professor StephenGreyser has observed that in recent times we have seen teams migrate from the sportspages to the business pages and, now sometimes, to the front page (Comeau, 2005).Like other large corporations, teams employ great numbers of people, generate profitsand losses, all the while seeking to achieve success against certain performancemetrics. And like other businesses, they have to perform well, remain financially viableand satisfy several stakeholders who have a financial interest...

He said “its easy to fill a stadium once, but each time its hard”. He saw that basketball would get bigger than it was and it needed to go to Miami. He said sports marketing is just about “Sagacity.” * Sagacity A vision for the future. Example by Louis, Nike taking swoosh off bottom of shirt and putting it on the chest.

...SPORTS MARKETING AND BRAND BUILDING Marketing Management - II Prof. Sanjay Patro Section C - Group 5 George Antony B13148 Mayank Siotia B13156 Vijender Kaur B13180 SPORTS MARKETING AND BRAND BUILDING An Introduction Not that long ago, a company that wanted to reach 20 million young Americans could do it easily—place an ad on Friends on Thursday night. With the proliferation of media types and channels, though, such large and predictable audiences are few and far between. Among all the media touch points, for example, cable has the highest share—34 percent—and of course cable audiences are highly fragmented. Broadcast television gets only 20 percent. Getting people’s attention at all is difficult enough; getting them to pay attention is well-nigh impossible. Sports is the exception. Because it is live, and because there is so much free publicity around major events— everything from water-cooler gossip to blogs to newspapers—sports breaks through the static. It is one of the few areas (music and fashion are others), where people are admittedly passionate. In that passion is opportunity for marketers. Because fans are already invested in the event or their team— think how insufferable New York Yankee or Manchester United fans can be—companies can tap into these emotions to connect with consumers and build an emotional bond with them. And because sports are best watched live, it’s harder to skip the ads, as Tivo- or DVR equipped viewers increasingly do. To begin with,...

...rackets were forced to turn to other manufacturers. The downturn in the economy also slammed Prince. “Prince is, and has always been, a premium brand,” Ballardie said. “Our products are in the upper echelons of the market. Our performance-line rackets, which is what we sell in pro specialty shops, were priced at $250 to more than $300 over the last four or five years. We saw a decrease in the number of rackets being sold across the whole market but an increase in the number of re-strings. People were reconditioning their rackets rather than buying new ones.” A new competitor, French racket-maker Babolat, also played a role in Prince’s struggles, with its push into the United States. Under a complex organization chart, Prince Global Sports is now part of a new entity established by Waitt called Athletic Brands Holding Co. Prince is responsible for tennis and squash product lines, which include rackets, string and the company’s growing tennis shoes business. Prince’s tennis unit generated $59 million in sales in 2011, accounting for 83 percent of the company’s $71 million in revenue, according to bankruptcy court records. Another business unit, Active Brands Co., is handling the Ektelon racquetball and Viking paddle tennis brands previously part of Prince....

...she started getting noticed as a tennis prodigy. She put her first mark in tennis as a thirteen year old when she won The Girls 16-and-under Eddie Herr Championship. 2. From the case how does the Business of Sports impact players’ careers (outside their sports activities)? Establishing a brand is key in any athletes career, in the case of Maria Sharapova she had ‘team sharapova’ that helped her build her brand. Like in Sharapova’s talent and winning are at the forefront of it all, without it it is impossible to build a power brand. Maria had all the talent in the world and winning the 2004 Wimbledon she exploded as tennis superstar on the court but also off the court as Max Eisenbud said “my phone did not stop ringing”. An athlete takes that winning image and sales it to corporations as the perfect person to the face of their brand. Athletes apart from their winning on the court, they have endorsements, licensing deals and merchandising the players earn huge amounts of money in the business of sports. Every endorsement is carefully chosen to fit and build an athlete’s power brand and that image that is built is what companies invest on when they sign an athlete to sale their brand. 3. The case spends several pages on the Tennis sector of Sports. Summarize in a few paragraphs the key elements of Tennis industry. 4. What part did Max Eisenbud play in the development of Maria’s career? Max Eisenbud played an enormous part in Sharapova’s career, he......

Sports Marketing Real Madrid Case

...Real Madrid Football Club: A New Model of Business Organization for Sports Clubs in Spain World soccer clubs, constrained by their inability to increase their income from their traditional businesses, have begun to adopt strategies to transform themselves into modern sports and media companies. Under the recent presidency of Florentino Pérez, the Spanish football club Real Madrid presents a good example of the application of this expanded vision. One of the fundamental pillars of this model has involved designing and implementing a new marketing strategy aimed at strengthening the value of the club's brand. The adoption of this model has resulted in a significant increase in income from marketing. Undeniably, in this area, Real Madrid has become the leader in world soccer. © 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. MIGUEL BLANCO CALLEJO AND FRANCISCO J AV I E R F O R C A D E L L America. The key aspect of this conception resides in the idea that sports clubs can behave as brands, and the essential principle is to exploit the sponsorship plan and sale of products, together with the commercialization and sale of audio-visual and television rights of sporting events. In soccer, Manchester United in the United Kingdom was the pioneer in commercially exploiting its brand on an international level, and this strategy was highly successful in the 1990s. During the early years of the 21st century, however, Real Madrid has gained the position of “commercial leadership” within the world......

Sports Website Summary

...The sports website I picked for this assignment is the Arizona State University’s website for all of their athletic programs; www.thesundevils.com. The website is itself is very user friendly. It has nine main tabs for users to click on that list the options of sports, schedules, tickets, audio/video, facilities, athletics, store, sun devil club, and fan zone. The main page of the website has a large scrolling picture marquee that shows the various recent accomplishments of many of the sport teams at Arizona State. The demographics for this website are complex to say the least. Demographics which are defined by our textbook as the gender, age, race, income, education, and marital status are all seen here on the website. First both genders are targeted on this website. They website it’s self has a section for men’s sport teams, as well as women’s sports teams. I found it interesting that Arizona State has more women’s sport teams than men’s. I would say the targeted age for this website would be teenagers possibly aspiring to attend and be a part of one of these collegiate teams- to adults. While the webpage is for the teens-adults the Sun Devil athletics want the younger fans too. On the web page they have a section for the Jr. Sun Devil club which is marketed towards the younger fans to have many different ASU athletic experiences. I believe the website aims to market towards all races and it does have pictures of athletes of different races, however the prominent race......

Real Madrid - Sports Marketing

...------------------------------------------------- Real Madrid – 1st Case Assignment The following answers are based on the case materials “Real Madrid Club de Futbol”, “Real Madrid Club de Futbol in 2007: Beyond the Galacticos” and the links in the footnotes. 1. What differentiates Real Madrid from other Soccer clubs? One thing that differentiates Real Madrid from other top soccer clubs is that Real Madrid is owned by its members while most other top club is owned by shareholders (investors). Another difference is that Real Madrid were quite early to realize the importance to serve as a marketing vehicle all over the world rather than just a soccer club compared many other soccer clubs. This was especially under the management of Perez Real Madrid as a brand and business got in focus. This meant that Real Madrid became a real business and that the management managed Real Madrid as a business rather than just a soccer club. The performance of Real Madrid as a soccer club is still key to the performance of the business though. 2. What provides the revenue stream from which the club benefits? About one fourth of the income in most top clubs is generated on match-day from such things as sponsorships, television rights and merchandising revenues. Revenue depends largely of the clubs participation and performance in major competitive events such as the European Champions League for instance. Below are listed four types of revenues the club generates and what it basically......

Sports Marketing

...Business 115 6 August 2006 Sports Marketing Marketing has become a vital part of sporting events in our country. When market researches use the four P’s to marketing; product, price, place and promotion they are more likely to be successful. NASCAR is a good example of a sporting event that spends a lot of money in market segmentation and marketing research. By doing so, NASCAR is able to find their target market and design their advertising for that particular market. There are many marketing opportunities available for sporting venues. Often we will see commercials advertising the next competition day on television or local areas will advertise for their specific venue. We also see billboards, magazines and newspapers advertising an event or an athlete. There is a lot of money to be made in advertising. According to an article written by Nickels-McHugh-McHugh, NASCAR decided early on that corporate sponsorship was vital to long-term growth because market research showed that NASCAR fans are three times more likely to buy NASCAR sponsors’ products than fans of other sports. Using the four P’s to marketing will ensure a company can use best marketing strategies as possible. Evaluating the product you are selling is the first step in marketing. You must have a product that people want and are willing to spend money. In sports, for example, the product is the sporting event. The product or event must be pleasing to the consumer so that they will continue to...

Sports Marketing Final Project

...Final Project: Sports Marketing Plan Randy Werner SPM/250 May 6, 2012 Jeff Price In today’s society youth athletics play a crucial part of millions of children’s everyday life. Children, along with their parents and siblings, spend hours each week practicing to play their favorite game. Along with the practice comes a major financial commitment by the parents in order to get their children involved with the elite sports programs. Historically youth baseball teams have been formed by participating in local little leagues. Over the past 5 to 10 years there has been a major change in the trend of parents wanting their children to play against more elite teams in order for their children to become better overall players. These elite teams have organized their own teams and have developed marketing plans to raise money which in return allows the team to have the top of the line equipment in order to compete at a higher level. This higher level of play is when teams travel all over the country to participate in elite tournaments that are being organized by local leagues or maybe just one small group of people to make money by hosting these events. There are numerous internal and external factors that need to be planned out when you decide to host and organize these events. ITOC Sports, short for Iowa Tournament of Champions, will be one organization that will organize and host these events. Some of the internal factors would be how many people will it take to......
