For most sports fans their self-concept is also related to their identity as a supporter of a specific sport team. The Collective Self-Esteem Scale (CSES),
with four subscales (group membership, private self-esteem, public self-esteem, and identity), was evaluated as a predictor of supporter identification with their
supporter group and their team; and then correlated with a recently developed commitment scale, with four subscales (loyalty, attendance, individualism, and
identification). In experiment 1 Welsh and Irish rugby supporters (N=92), were handed either positive or negative false information about the status of their in-
group. Both the CSES and supporter commitment scale were highly significant (F= 110.689, p < 0.01, F=4.803, p < 0.05). In experiment 2 Welsh supporters
( N=82), were handed either a positive or negative false information about the status of their team. Both the CSES and supporter commitment scale were not
significant, although subscale identification was (F= 9.048, p < 0.05). Consistent with social identity theory, low status affected identification in both experiments.
However, low status lowered collective self-esteem when their supporter group status was threatened. In addition, results show group membership was
important regardless of supporter group status.
