      Thank you, Ana – not too late. On a cross-country odyssey to see youngest son married to the beauteous Katie King. We told him that if he backed out, we’d disown him and adopt Katie, who’s a wonderful young woman indeed.

      Ned,



      Albeit late, read the following articles that highlight World Cup advertising revenues and market share:



      http://www.socceramerica.com/article/38391/us-world-cup-tv-audience-keeps-growing.html



      http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/08/sports/soccer/08sandomir.html



      You should also keep a close-eye on any industry trade publications as they will continue to highlight ad revenue, consumers reached, world-wide market-share growth, etc. throughout the Cup schedule.

      Ana



      I did not mean that the World Cup isn’t significant – I was, instead, focusing on the hype surrounding the World Cup, fed by sponsors and advertisers.



      I do understand that the US is the major hold-out against caring about the World Cup. Soccer has been trying to gain a toehold in the US market since at least 1966 (that was about the time when my high school first fielded a soccer team – which attracted fewer fans than the debate team – and Emory also fielded a team in ’66 – my history teacher in ’68 was also our high school soccer coach by virtue of having played on the Emory Team in 66 and 67 – and I recall he told me that Emory was ahead of the curve in adopting soccer at the college level).



      In the years since, I’ve been to a half dozen professional matches here since then, and generally you could fit the stadium’s worth of fans into a public school auditorium’s bleachers. When you’re in Atlanta’s Fulton County Stadium with fewer than 100 people watching a professional soccer match, you understand that here in the US, soccer isn’t “here” yet.



      But in the rest of the world, soccer fans go so far as to kill one another (I recall that two central American countries actually went to war, briefly, over a soccer match – I think it was in ’69) over soccer. Now that’s real passion!


      BTW – of the two links you sent, one had nothing about the hype or advertising/ sponsorship hoopla around the 2010 WC, and the other wasn’t a valid link. I realize you sent this from your phone and may not have been able to verify the links, but when you get to your computer, would you mind checking? I’d really like to follow them up, but can’t.


      Thanks for your reply

      Ned-not hype. Soccer is the biggest sport in the world and all major co's, including McDonalds, ESPN, Coke, Pepsi to name a few, are involved.

      In terms of reports, articles, write-ups, read the following:

      Folks, I'm trying to figure out the World Cup 2010 hype and the benefits (if
      any) of sponsorship. I have to admit I'm not a big World Cup fan, but since
      the USA is lining up to be a host in the future, I'm trying to figure out
      how this compares to America's annual advertising binge tied to the
      Superbowl (or perhaps the World Series - or all the playoff games leading to
      the Superbowl).

      My experience with sponsorships and hype are tied to the 1996 Atlanta
      Olympics and the 2008 Beijing Olympics (I helped a client become the
      "official operating system of the 2008 Beijing Olympics). It doesn't extend
      into World Cup soccer, and it's a bit out of date (I negotiated the 2008
      deal in 2001). So I invite your insights.

      To focus my questions (and your answers), consider this:

      * How have either the massive sponsorship deals and/or the sponsors'
      marketing campaigns fared till now?
      * Have the companies who are official sponsors been able to leverage
      any meaningful or measurable advantage from the event hype so far?
      * What have been the total financial outlays in terms of sponsorship
      of the event?
      * Are there any significant differences in sponsorship deals this time
      as compared to previous World Cup sponsorships?
      * How is the event going to affect the non sponsor companies who are
      not paying hefty sponsorship fees, but are nonetheless creating huge
      marketing campaigns surrounding the event?
      * This year's World Cup is being held in the Union of South Africa -
      which is both African (duh), predominantly black and NOT a world-class
      soccer competitor. Perhaps coincidentally, perhaps not (which is my
      question), this year's World Cup hype seems decidedly muted (or so I've been
      told by people who care). In the end, does racism or a dismissal of
      African nations and/or a dismissal of non-competitive nations factor into
      this lowering of the hype and value of sponsorship that seems to be the case
      this year (or so I've been told)?

      If you've got any links to write-ups on this upcoming World Cup from a
      sponsorship/ advertising perspective, I'd like to see those, too.

      Thanks

      Ned
