Transport Behaviour of Fans Arriving to the Polsat Plus Arena Gdańsk Football Stadium as an Element of City Logistics Management
Purpose: Determining the profile and the relationship between the fan's demographic profile and the way of traveling to the stadium. Design/Methodology/Approach: To establish a relationship between qualitative data that allows a feature to be ordered according to its strength of that feature, the best method is to determine the Spearman's rank correlation coefficient. The use of this coefficient is the most appropriate choice, as the correlation (interdependence of qualitative characteristics) concerns the description of the transport behaviour of passengers commuting to the stadium using various means of transport. Moreover, by analyzing the relationships between these variables by the correspondence method, a similar profile of passengers using a given means of transport is obtained. Findings: The analysis of the presented data in the figures and tables that the analyzed features do not show a large correlation on the way fans commute to the football stadium. Originality/Value: The originality of the article is related to the innovative approach to the issues affecting the management of the offer of transport services - the use of the Spearman's rank correlation method and correspondence analysis in the research of passengers commuting to the football stadium.
