Drinks sponsors celebrate Women’s World Cup fever

As Australia is gripped by FIFA Women’s World Cup fever, new data from brand tracking platform Tracksuit shows sponsors are reaping huge rewards.

The data shows 42% of consumers are more likely to purchase from a brand that actively promotes and supports women’s sports over brands who do not.

Gen Z are leading the charge with 60% of Aussies aged 18-24 prefer brands that back women’s sport (compared to only 40% for those aged  35-64); 45% of men are more likely to purchase from a brand backing female sport compared to 39% of women; almost 77% of Aussies have noticed an improvement in attention and support towards women’s sport in recent years; those aged 65 or older have noticed the change the most (81%).

Tracksuit head of marketing Mikayla Hopkins said: “Brands that have prioritised supporting women’s sport are reaping the rewards. While many said there’s no money in women’s sport, this data proves the exact opposite.”
