Relo Metrics has already been providing the European market with sponsorship valuation data across social media for years. This expanded offering now allows the company to become one of the only omnichannel providers of sponsorship valuation data globally.

This expanded approach is not limited to major sports; it extends to emerging and women's sports, enhancing revenue growth and market understanding.

Expanding coverage to layer in broadcast with social media measurement is a monumental move for Relo Metrics. Based on research pulled from the Relo Census dataset, from Sep 2022 to Oct 2023, in total for all US major leagues (MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, MLS, WNBA), there was $9.9B in Sponsor Media Value (SMV) generated from broadcast, as compared to $1.2B from social. Meaning broadcast represents a huge majority (up to approximately 80%) of the sponsor media value that will now be measured in a single platform view.
Established as a market leader in sports analytics, Relo Metrics offers comprehensive, near-real-time data on sponsor exposure across live broadcasts, social media, and streaming platforms. The company's innovative approach has empowered brands, teams, and leagues to optimize their sponsorship investments efficiently. With the recent launch of Relo Census, the company is now extending this innovative approach worldwide, beginning with an ambitious rollout in EMEA and eventually reaching over 100 markets.
"The expansion of Relo Metrics and the introduction of international broadcast measurement, combined with our existing social media business, represent a paradigm shift in how sports sponsorship is analyzed and valued, and the business processes enabled by software and scaled data will create efficiencies for buyers and sellers of sports sponsorship," commented Jay Prasad, CEO of Relo Metrics. "This move not only positions Relo Metrics as a leader in sports analytics but also paves the way for a more dynamic, responsive approach to sports marketing in EMEA and globally."
