Olympic Games, also needs a proper marketing
strategy that will help it in becoming a better

has always been valuable for both the
parties. This time, McDonald's has launched
a social media campaign for the Sochi 2014
Olympic Winter Games.
The „Cheers To Sochi‟ is an initiative started by
McDonald‟s. Supporters of the games can send
their personalized good luck messages – or
„cheers‟ – directly to their favorite athletes and
teams by using the Hashtag #CheersToSochi on
Twitter, or by visiting www.cheerstosochi.com.
That‟s not all, these „cheers‟ will then be shared
at a special display in the Athletes‟ Village in
Sochi, where athletes can view and print the
messages onto ribbons to wear around their
wrists. Athletes may even tweet their
appreciation back to lucky fans.
Timo Lumme, managing director of the IOC
Television and Marketing Services
said, “McDonald‟s is a valued global Olympic
partner, and we appreciate their incredible ability
to reach millions of fans around the world with
innovative, inspiring programmes like this.”
There have been more than 1500 cheers
already and more are set to come all throughout
the game. Famous athletes from all over the
world are getting impressive numbers of cheers.
US hockey player Patrick Kane, Canadian
hockey player Drew Doughty, US speed skater
Shani Davis, Canadian figure skater Patrick
Chan are the most common names in the
cheers that have been registered as of now.

Initiatives like this acts as one of the most
significant ways of increasing the enthusiasm of
