This research develops the Experiential Value Scale for Sport Consumption (EVSSC). Drawing from the literature on experiential research, a second-order factor model of experiential value was developed. The items were mainly adopted from the Experiential Value Scale (EVS) by Mathwick, Malhotra, and Rigdon (2001). The original items were generated from in-depth interviews with professional football spectators, in addition to the review of previous research. The reliability and validity of the proposed measures were assessed by Cronbach's alpha coefficients and a confirmatory factor analysis. The results provided fair support for the EVSSC. Confirming an acceptable model fit to the data, hierarchical and non-hierarchical cluster analyses were conducted by using eleven factors in the EVSSC. Four clusters emerged and were interpreted as “Experiential Valued Spectators,” “Non-Experiential Valued Spectators,” “Intrinsic Valued Spectators,” and “CROI Valued Spectators.” Although the results showed the modification on the EVSSC constructs, the findings and recommendations for future research provide numerous opportunities for advancing our understanding of experiential value marketing.
