An Examination of Brand Management in the Global Economy with Specific Reference to Sports Brands and Sponsorship

Sport Branding and Sponsorship Dissertation – Due to the growth in competition in contemporary media environments sports organisations are becoming more and more preoccupied with their image. As a result of the high profile and fame that a sports personality attributes, they are utilised to help brands create a competitive advantage, allowing their advertisements to stand out in today’s cluttered media environment. It is recognised that this integrated communication strategy has the power to influence consumers, leading to the change in perception of a brand’s corporate identity and image by sustaining loyalty through purchase behaviour.

The aim of this dissertation is to distinguish transnational purchase intentions as a repercussion of examining consumer perceptions towards celebrity endorsements between Italy and the UK. Secondary research was derived from an amalgamation of Internet sources, online databases, newspaper articles as well as academic journals in which a critical review of the current literature was examined. In order to grasp contemporary consumer behaviour and substantiate secondary sources, primary research was carried out in the form of triangulation using interviews, questionnaires and focus groups.
