Consumer Psychological Approach Consumer psychological approach to sports sponsorship has focused on consumers’ cognitive and affective response. For example, awareness of sports sponsorship and brand name, recognition of sports events after termination and image fit between events and sponsor are good example of research steam in perspective of consumer psychology and behaviour (Bennett, Henson and Zhang, 2002; Koo, Morris and Flynn, 2006; Miloch and Lambert, 2006; Mason and Cochetel, 2006; Harvey, Gray and Despain, 2006). Financial Evaluation Approach
With the increased use of event study on sports-related sponsorships, marketers are able to assess the economic value of sponsorship. Much effort has been made to investigate the influence of sports sponsorship on response in stock market using event study. Abnormal stock return has been a good indicator to identify stock price changes in stock market because of sports sponsorship (Miyazaki and Morgan, 2001; Kim and Morris, 2003; Prutt, Cornwell and Clark,
2004; Sneath, Finney and Close, 2005).
