Is there anything here that doesn't follow the formula? The Theories THE RIGHT FIT When sponsoring need to consider 3 important factors
1. Target audience reach
2. Emotional response
3. Value for money (McNeile 2009) THE LINK Needs to be a definite and purposeful link between the brand/product and the target audience (Kim 2010) IMAGE TRANSFER POTENTIAL The sponsor and the sponsee both bring their own image which they transfer to each other

This image is then transferred to the consumer through sponsorship (Reilly & Madill 2011) BRAND IMAGE The image of the event you are sponsoring will be transferred to your product.

The image of the event and the product should be matched.

Sunrise stated 'With football codes all facing more attention over their attitude to women, it is thought by women's advocates that a better sponsor could be found.' Hooters characterizes itself as a neighborhood place, not a typical family restaurant. Sixty-eight percent of customers are male, most between the ages of 25-54.
