This research has re-evaluated the effectiveness of the sponsorship arrangement between the insurance company Divina Pastora and the basketball team Joventut de Badalona. It is based on the work of Martínez and Ruiz (2019), where different marketing variables were valued during the first 15 months of commercial relationship. In this study we have applied the same methodology, but with a long-term approach, 30 months after the beginning of the sponsorship. Therefore, a random sample of consumers was used in two different markets, which were interviewed by a specialized company. Results are consistent with the limited evidence of efficacy obtained in the short and medium term evaluations, although they differ in the level of aided recall. The professionals of the sector will have to evaluate if this type of limited benefits compensate the important economic investment that supposes to be the main sponsor of a team in professional sport.
