Abstract

This paper examines the impact of parental style on the sport consumption preferences of teenagers. Marketers are increasingly interested in the impact that parents have on their children’s purchase preferences and behaviours and past research suggests that the degree and nature of such influence varies with different parental styles and with different cultures. In spite of this earlier work, there is little research which looks specifically at the impact of parental style and sport consumption preferences and behaviours of teenagers. This exploratory study develops a profile of the sport consumption attitudes and behaviours of teens according to the parental style practiced by their parents. It is hoped that the paper will open an academic discourse on the subject by providing an exploratory investigation of Australian teenagers and parents, and by highlighting likely problems for sports marketers who rely on research and marketing theories that have only been tested in one cultural context, when entering new and lucrative global markets.
