Research question: In previous studies on consumer-based brand equity (CBBE) in sports, brand knowledge (BKNW) was the primary factor of CBBE, despite its many interrelated drivers. Particularly, CBBE was not investigated with enough depth or from a holistic perspective in the context of sports leagues (SLG). Therefore, in this study, the customer-based brand equity pyramid (CBBE-pyramid) (Keller, 2008) was adapted to the context of SLG to fill the gap which remained unexamined in the team and league branding context by examining the relationship between BKNW, brand responses (BRP) and brand resonance (BR).
