Blogger Bleg--WNBA Survey

It's that time of the year again--when school requirement override blogging duties. My group's Sports Marketing project centers on the potential introduction of a WNBA team in the Denver area.

The survey should take no more than a few minutes, is completely anonymous (names and email are not required or collected), is entirely voluntary, and available only to those 18 and older.

Your participation in this survey is greatly appreciated by yours truly.

The Denver professional sports market is unique in that very few other U.S. cities in comparable size support four major professional and four minor professional sports teams. We are interesting in learning more about additional market opportunities that might exist in the Denver professional sports market, including the potential market viability for a Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) team in Denver.

This survey is part of a Sports Marketing Research project conducted by a group of graduate students from the University of Colorado Denver. Your participation as one of a small number of people selected to offer their opinion on these matters will ensure that the results more truly represent the thinking of professional sports consumers. It is important that we achieve a sample response that is diverse in order to most precisely reflect overall consumer attitudes. It is also important that we have approximately the same amount of male and female respondents. For this, your response is very important. Please note however that we require that respondents must also be at least 18 years of age.

Your participation is greatly appreciated, and entirely voluntary. Surveys are anonymous and you can be assured of complete confidentiality. Your responses will be used only for aggregate analysis and will not be identified as an individual response. No personal contact information will be shared with any outside parties, nor will it be sold or made available to any commercial entity. You may receive a summary of the survey results by requesting a copy with your submitted survey response. Please do not include contact information or request for survey results on the survey itself.

We would be happy to answer any questions you might have. Please email us at,, or Professor Lawrence Cunningham of the CU Denver Graduate School of Business is also available to answer any questions you may have (

Estimated survey time: 15-20 minutes.

Thank you for your assistance and consideration.
