Rugby fans and newsbrands

  1. 1. 17.2mmen read newspapers around the average sporting weekend (Fri-Mon) in 2010 6mmen watched the 2007 Rugby World Cup Final on TV 2011 Rugby World Cup Kick out for glory with newspapers
  2. 2. Rugby is the key passionate sport of the nation; it is down to the determination of the guys who play the game. You can see every minute of the game they are putting 110% into it It is just the sheer passion. Whenever any other sport is playing the national anthem the head is down they are not really singing. But in terms of rugby you see the biggest men you are ever going to see crying. I think they feel completely differently about playing for their country. The ex players are very passionate in their writing and they are getting better with their prose, so it is good to read. It is good stuff. Newspapers Pride, Passion & Patriotism
  3. 3. Newspapers reflect rugby’s spirit Intelligence, Sporting Honesty & Integrity
  4. 4. It is only newspapers who have the commitment to report in depth Malcolm Vallerius, Sports Editor, Mail on Sunday They are the people who know what they are talking about Newspapers The fans’ match day programme throughout…

  9. 9. It is credible. They’re the very reasons why we like rugby so much, why people like rugby so much, it’s not mucking about, it’s not making it up and that last line, the best a fan can get, that’s very clever, it’s honest. Big old muddy hand with the red rose that we’re very passionate about. That’s the emblem we wear so that’s reflecting the fans’ pride in the England rugby team which will make us remember that advert, and I do remember that advert. That’s very nicely done.

  10. 10. They’re identifiable, they’re a team, so therefore the product they are endorsing is a pukka product. They’ve actually spent some money and they’ve got the entire England team there. I like this because it panders to my little ego that I’m clever enough to know exactly who that is and it doesn’t have to hit me over the head with a frying pan to know what that is and what it’s about.

  14. 14. National newspapers Creative Benchmarking demonstrates that advertising around newspapers’ coverage of rugby has succeeded in reaching out to involve and motivate readers. Creative Benchmarking, developed for newspapers in association with Kantar Media, is based on Kantar’s TV creative benchmarking system. The key measure is TNS’s AdEval™ Motivated /Involved. Great newspaper advertising creates involvement with the reader, and motivates them to feel closer to the brand and / or to buy or to find out more. To be involved consumers must like the ad and find it relevant. To be motivated, they must first be involved, and agree that the ad raises their interest in and opinion of the brand. Creative Benchmarking is a cost-effective way for brands to evaluate the performance of their own, or their competitors’, TV and newspaper advertising in a similar way. Ads are also scored against a range of ad metrics. To read all about Creative Benchmarking, visit The Top 2007 Rugby World Cup Ads Creative Benchmarking
