How Digital Virgo boosts audiences during major sports events like The World Cup

Big sports events are coming in 2023/2024, for example, CAN 2023, Rugby World Cup, Nations League and 2024 Euro. Today, less people are watching TV without using their phones, 51% of people interested in watching sports check live stats while watching the event. We know that sports events bring large audiences, which in turn brings consumer spending.  Digital Virgo has a range of solutions to boost and monetize your audience.

Evolution of TV audiences

According to Nielsen, the general population has increased its multi-screen viewing activities (social media, texting, playing games, ordering food) by an average of 5% over the last year. This percentage even doubles to 10% among Gen Z. In total, 47% of the people who watch sports on TV or digital platforms simultaneously watch other live content, a much higher number than the general population (33%). It means currently one screen is not enough, even though people still enjoy watching TV.

At the same time, OTT media is growing up, especially in the sports industry. This increase in consumption of additional sports content, both related to and not related to live matches, is especially high among younger generations. Furthermore, still according to Nielsen, 44% of fans aged 16-29 who watch non-live sports content related to live matches do so via digital devices.

The aim is to ensure that viewers continue to watch live sporting events and to increase the overall audience. Digital Virgo provides solutions to adapt to these new habits.
