Asia-Pacific is expected to be a promising market growing with a CAGR of 6.65% owing to the increasing inclination towards sports and it offers good growth opportunity for various sports sponsorship vendors. This shift can be attributed to several factors, including the rise of mobile and digital penetration coupled with the proliferation of general entertainment content and a lack of deep-seated, generational sport passion in Asia.

For example, if user compares the viewership of best TV running shows that generates 200-250 Billion viewers in two months, but a cricket world cup generates viewership of about 300 Billion on streaming side.
Another fact that is favorable for digital sponsorship of sports is the active participation and democratization of viewers which creates different flavor for both advertisement purposes as well as in sponsoring sports in social media platforms. In addition, there is an increase in the interest of viewers in second screening, triple screening and talks about games, hit moments, analyzing matches over twitters and other social media platforms.

They can watch 15 second highlights reels of a match; can look for apps to provide them latest stats on players, behind scene contents along with instant reactions etc. All these features and benefits will be more integrated with sports sponsorship as the companies would more likely use digital media platform to sponsor their brands not in a particular time as in television, but all around the day.
