Previous research in sport psychology has shown a connection between fan support of sport teams and overall team success by focusing on factors that influence the frequency of fan attendance. The present study examined the impact of fan identification as another determinant of fan support that may operate independent of structural factors such as win-loss record or actual fan attendance. College undergraduates (N=120) completed a survey of student activities that contained measures of collective esteem and ingroup identification in terms of their university affiliation. Subjects indicated the number of games attended and provided evaluations of the university's basketball and football teams. Results indicated that aspects of collective group identity significantly predict fan support in terms of attendance and overall evaluation of both sport teams. Also, level of group identification predicted attitudinal support of teams regardless of actual fan attendance. Implications for the connection of fan identity to more general forms of ingroup identification are discussed.

The purpose of this study was to investigate factors affecting brand awareness of virtual advertising in sports. Specifically, the study tested the effects of animation, repetition, baseball involvement, and team identification. An experiment using two Latin square designs was conducted to assess the effects of these factors on awareness levels. Results indicated no effect of animation, while effects of repetition, baseball involvement, and team identification were found to affect viewers’ cognitive responses. Managerial implications, limitations, and future research are discussed.

Finally, we sought to explore the efficacy of the half-marathon as a talent-identification tool for the marathon distance, as it is our belief that the half-marathon distance, as opposed to other common race distances, better mimics the

Process The identification of the processual nature of coaching was largely in response to the episodic interpretation that permeated descriptions of participation coaching. I argued that coaching is serial, as there is a temporal and relational aspect, and aggregative, because of the incremental

Although these biases might threaten the efficacy of talent identification and selection processes, the role of biological maturation and relative age effect on specific positional role allocation remains rather

In an attempt to improve sporting success at both club and national standards, governing bodies such as the Rugby Football League (England) have resourced talent identification and development (TID) programs to aid selection and training processes for young “talented” players. 1 Clubs are also
