A sample of 956 consumers who had attended a spectator sports event provided insight into what sport they last witnessed as part of the live audience. The data were collected in a major market with all four North American leagues plus major and mid-major collegiate sports and an abundance of minor league and other recreational sports. The respondents also identified the primary motive for attending. They also provided their age and gender. The results identified 41 different sports and 34 unique motives for attending. Age and gender were shown to be related to several, but far from all, of the motives.
