چکیده

این پژوهش با هدف شناسایی و رتبه‌بندی عوامل مؤثر بر برندسازی مشترک در بین تولیدکنندگان تجهیزات ورزشی و باشگاه های فوتبال لیگ برتر ایران انجام شد. پژوهش حاضر از نوع مطالعات کیفی- کمّی بود. جامعة آماری خبرگان مدیریت بازاریابی ورزشی، مدیران باشگاه‌ها و مدیران شرکت‌های تولیدکنندة تجهیزات ورزشی بودند. شانزده نفر در این پژوهش مشارکت کردند و پنل دلفی پژوهش را تشکیل دادند. در این مطالعه برای شناسایی عوامل مؤثر بر برندسازی مشترک در بین باشگاه‌ها و تولیدکنندگان تجهیزات ورزشی، از روش دلفی فازی استفاده شد. بنا بر نظر پنل دلفی، عوامل شناسایی‌شده در قالب چهار عامل اصلی با 19 مؤلفه به شرح زیر دسته‌بندی شدند: مدیریت برند (تقویت ارزش برند، استفاده از دانش و تجربة برندهای شریک در حوزة مدیریت برند، جایگاه برند، هویت برند، ارزش ویژة برند و تصویر برند)، ارتباط بین شرکا (رضایتمندی، اعتماد متقابل، تعهد، منافع مشترک، قابلیت اطمینان به محصول و راهبردهای خلاق و نوآورانه)، عوامل بازاریابی (آمیختة بازاریابی، موقعیت بازار، مزیت رقابتی و ورود به بازارهای جدید داخلی) و عوامل حمایتی (قانون کپی‌رایت، قراردادها و رسانه‌های اجتماعی). به‌منظور اولویت‌بندی عوامل مؤثر بر برندسازی مشترک از روش تصمیم­گیری سلسله‌مراتبی و نرم‌افزار اکسپرت چویس استفاده شد؛ براین‌اساس از بین مؤلفه‌های پژوهش، بازاریابی با وزن نسبی 441/0 مهم‌ترین عامل تأثیرگذار بود و بعد از آن به‌ترتیب ارتباط بین شرکا (290/0)، مدیریت برند (152/0) و عوامل حمایتی (117/0) قرار داشتند. همچنین با توجه به نرخ سازگاری به‌دست‌آمده برابر با 05/0، اعتبار مناسب این اطلاعات تأیید شد؛ بنابراین می‌توان از نتایج این‌گونه استنباط کرد که برای راهبری آینده‌نگر باشگاه‌های فوتبال استفاده از موارد به‌دست‌آمده در این پژوهش می‌تواند راهگشا باشد.
