It provides the sports industry with:

  • Enrichment and enhancement of fan insights

  • Enhancement of sports marketing and partnership campaigns”

Kate Kopczynski, Associate Director, Nielsen Consumer & Media View said: “Nielsen Consumer & Media View is a rich data set that provides a 360-degree view of consumers across all areas of their lives.

“Combining this with Nielsen SportsLink which has a unique understanding of Australian fan engagement and their behaviour across the sports entertainment landscape will mean that the sports industry has a unique understanding of the thoughts and actions of Australian fans.”
