Sport Fandom SIG

Mission

To provide a forum for the distribution of ideas and information on the psychology of sport fandom, in particular the reciprocal relationship between athletic performance and spectators.

Five Points of Emphasis

  1. The impact of sport viewing on spectators' affect, cognition, and behavior.
  2. The reactions of youth sports parents as sport spectators.
  3. Factors that impact spectator consumption and attendance.
  4. Positive psychology and sport fandom (i.e., the psychological and societal benefits of fandom).
  5. The impact of spectators on athletic performance (e.g., social facilitation and the home field advantage).
