So what does it mean? “Brand sponsorships are always a large part of sports tournaments; sponsoring air time, digital, or social campaigns; and of course there are brands that try to capitalize on the social conversation,” Stat Social’s Audrey Hungerman told Cynopsis. “Bleacher Report sponsored Final Four coverage and had the highest affinity, which makes the most sense since they were the only sports brand. They were also the fourth favorite brand overall. Wisconsin fans outnumbered Duke fans on social too, as Wisconsin was the second most popular state and University of Wisconsin was the top college/university based on affinity.” Check out the infographic at www.cynopsis.com.
