Sports fans are no longer relying solely on traditional media to get news and information about the teams they support. They often turn to social media—including online sports forums—as a primary source of information. Using Q-sort methodology, this study sought to understand more about sports-forum participants and why they visit and participate in these online forums. A factor analysis identified three types of sports-forum participants based on personality characteristics and opinion statements: tailgaters, trivia seekers, and bandwagon fans. The identification of these factors tends to support previous research examining the motivations for visiting and using online sports forums.
