Abstract

This study proposes and tests a model related to small-scale sport events using a conceptual model and a survey of athletes who participate in sporting events analyzed using structural equation modeling and fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis (fsQCA). The fsQCA results yield three models implying that small-scale event participants require a combination of attributes to consider or eventually participate. The SEM findings reveal that involvement, travel motives, and decision factors significantly affect motivational factors, and motivational factors significantly affect decision factors. A combination of positive motivation factors, positive involvement, and negative travel motives can significantly influence decision factors.
