4C, a data science company, has revealed the results of its Rugby World Cup tracking on television and social media, providing insight into the behaviour of 1.5 billion unique social media users across 250,000 interest categories, 50,000 brands, 6,000 TV programmes, and 41 languages. Additional data was analysed through 4C’s Teletrax global TV monitoring network, which monitors more than 2,100 channels in 76 countries.
One of the key results was that although the All Blacks team from New Zealand won the Rugby World Cup final, it was the Aussies that emerged victorious in terms of Total Engagement and Engagement Lift.
“Luckily for the All Blacks from New Zealand, the winners of the Rugby World Cup, the tournament was not decided by engagement lift, because if it had the final would have seen Australia beat Ireland!” commented Andy Nobbs, SVP, Global TV Analytics Sales and EMEA Activation at 4C.
“Looking at the brands there were a number of great performances from Coca Cola, Emirates, Heineken, Land Rover, Microsoft, Samsung but it’s probably SSE who lifted the advertising cup, with it’s TV advertising-led campaign providing a more than 12 times lift in engagement for the newly branded utility company,” concluded Nobbs.
Highlights from the 4C data study included:
• More than 16 million social engagements during the entire Rugby World Cup tournament
• New Zealand won the cup, but Australia won the tournament in terms of engagements (Aus: 2,826,786 v NZ: 2,326,884) and engagement lift (Aus: 4.09 v NZ: 2.0)
• Australia generated more engagements during the final match (Aus: 287,407 v NZ: 225,233)
