Sport Fans Of Sheffield. We Need Your Help!

Recommended Posts

Hello All my name is Phil Baines. A student researcher at the Carnegie School Of Sport as part of Leeds beckett University . 


We are currently carrying out a small research project into sport fan motivation in Sheffield. It requires filling in a survey (Average completion time is about 3 mins) 


It can be accessed at this link : https://leedsbeckettsport.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eIG9Bi04TYeT0rA 


More info on the project is below: 


What is the Project about?


This project has the intention to examine sports fan motivations and the determinants of demand for those attending Sheffield Bladerunner baseball club (SBBC) events. The project intends to compare these demands against sport fans who attend more “mainstream” events in the city of Sheffield.


The aim of the study is to gain a better understanding into why spectators do or do not attend Sheffield baseball events.  This will help create recommendations as to how the SBBC can increase their demand for spectators at their home games going forward. This study will hopefully be able to also offer advice to sports clubs in similar position as academic knowledge in this field is limited.



What will I be asked to do?


As a participant you will be asked a few questions in a survey, this should take approximately 3 mins.


How will the information be used?


The information will be used for a degree dissertation, and it will only be read by the researcher, the supervisor (Details above) Or the Local Research Ethics Coordinator, for the Carnegie school of sport at Leeds Beckett University.

How will the information and my name be kept confidential / anonymous?
