We empirically examined the effect of sponsorship on firms` performance. Among many indices measuring a firm`s performance, we focused on its revenue and revealed that the performance of players sponsored by the firm has a significant and positive impact on the firm`s revenue. In light of transaction data on sports equipments from its importer, our paper makes the following primary contribution by empirically examining the short run effect of sports sponsorship. We believe our findings based on the field data provide strong implications for firms faced with similar decisions.
