The World Cup June 2014 © 2014 Webloyalty & Conlumino enquiries@webloyalty.co.uk | 020 7291 8720 World Cup summary A captive audience With over half the population intending to actively watch the World Cup, retailers have a captive audience to which they can cater. Given the timing of the games, this is all the more so since the majority of people are intending to watch from home – which means they are likely to buy snacks, food and drink to consume while watching. Get a new TV set With a lot of recent investment in new televisions (thanks to thinner screens, digital upgrades and new technological advances) it is not surprising that relatively few people are planning to buy a new television for the World Cup. Nevertheless, 1% does translate into a sizeable opportunity for retailers. Overpriced There is a widely held view that replica shirts are overpriced. Almost 79% of those likely to buy shirts say that they have been deterred by the high price points. When asked what a reasonable price for a shirt would be, the majority of consumers think below £30 is fair. On average, they believe £20 is a fair price point. 78% of us wouldn’t have bought one regardless of price. A boost to retail Overall, we estimate that the spending around the World Cup will be worth £814m. Most of this will be on food and drink. Naturally, some of this will be spend that is reallocated from other areas – for example normal food spend – however, there will be an overall boost to retail spending thanks to the tournament.

  13. 13. Methodology Page 13 © 2014 Webloyalty & Conlumino enquiries@webloyalty.co.uk | 020 7291 8720 Looking ahead ... The World Cup June 2014 Methodologies and sources •  A combination of consumer research, secondary research and market forecasting were used to compile this report. •  Consumer research in this report is based on a survey conducted with a UK nationally representative poll of consumers. Over 2,000 consumers were interviewed during early May 2014 and questioned about their views on the World Cup and their intentions for this. •  All numbers relating to expenditure and forecast expenditure of gadgets are taken from Conlumino’s own retail model. This is updated on an ongoing basis with inputs from official sources (such as the BRC and ONS), retailers’ results and trading updates, other secondary sources and industry surveys, Conlumino’s ongoing programme of research into consumer spending and habits, and underlying economic drivers and trends. Conlumino analysts both model and interpret this information to provide guidance on the likely future direction of retail expenditure at an overall, sector and category level. •  Unless otherwise stated, all sources of information are derived from Conlumino’s own research and should be referenced to Webloyalty/ Conlumino.
