Relationships fans have with their favorite teams and players have a powerful impact on their lives. In this presentation, we will examine some of the affective, behavioral, and cognitive reactions of fans and discuss the important place fandom has in the lives of these individuals. Additionally, we will investigate some issues that will likely lead to changes in fandom.
