Description

Fans are motivated to attend sporting events for a variety of different factors. These motivations may vary depending on the level of competition, the location the event is being held, and the demographic that makes up an area’s fan base. Our study will investigate the most prevalent factors that motivate fans to attend sporting events. The research will consist of a survey given to University of Dayton students, faculty, fans, and residents of Dayton who have interest in attending sport events. This survey will allow us to determine variables that most commonly motivate individuals to attend the First Four games, which may be unique because these games do not include the presence of University of Dayton’s men’s basketball team. We believe the results of this study can be useful for arenas who host neutral site events similar to the First Four.
