SIQ Spotlight: Unveil the Impact of IPL 2024 Sponsors with Talkwalker header

IPL 2024 has been a whirlwind of excitement and engagement, not just on the field but also in the digital arena. At Talkwalker, we dived deep into the social media landscape to analyze the impact and visibility of key team sponsors during this exhilarating season.

Scope of the Study

As we conclude the halfway mark of this year’s IPL, we focused our analysis on some of the select top sponsors associated with the IPL 2024 teams and for the time period from March 22 to April 21, 2024. This included:

  • Dream11 for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Gujarat Titans (GT), and Punjab Kings (PBKS)
  • Slice for Mumbai Indians (MI)
  • TVS Eurogrip for Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
  • Luminous for Rajasthan Royals (RR)
  • Qatar Airways for Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB)
  • MY11Circle for Lucknow Super Giants (LSG)
  • BKT for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)
  • Hero Fincorp for Delhi Capitals (DC)

Our Methodology

Our approach was meticulous and innovative. We leveraged Talkwalker's cutting-edge social listening and intelligence capabilities to monitor conversations around selected Sponsors related to their IPL 2024 sponsorship across platforms like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and more.

Using OCR technology, brand recognition, and textual analysis, we detected sponsor brands’ mentions and their logos within shared images and videos. This methodology helped us create a robust framework termed a Sponsor Influence Quotient (SIQ).

SIQ is an online audience-centric approach to understanding the impact of brand sponsorships. The Sponsor Influence Quotient (SIQ) is built out of 5 weighted scores: 

  • Total no. of Results/ Posts
  • Engagement
  • Potential Reach
  • Sentiment
  • Unique Authors

Key Findings

Overall Sponsor Influence Quotient (SIQ): Our analysis unveiled fascinating insights. Slice, in association with Mumbai Indians, secured the highest SIQ of 4.21 out of 5, showcasing exceptional brand visibility and impact. Dream11 emerged strongly with SIQ scores of 3.64 (KKR) and 3.53 (PBKS).

The key driver to Slice’s high SIQ is its remarkable Engagement. They surpassed 5 million interactions in the context of Mumbai Indians (MI), largely on Instagram. Slice's logo and mentions struck a chord with the audience, resulting in significant interactions, largely driven by the MI’s Social Media posts featuring key players, fun facts, match performances, etc.

TVS Eurogrip also garnered significant engagement, exceeding 3 million interactions. 

Here are a few sample posts that contributed to the highest engagement:


Dream11 scored maximum on the potential Reach, claiming the top three positions with reach figures of

  • 7.9 billion for KKR
  • 7.7 billion for PBKS
  • 6.8 billion for GT

Sports Publications like Sportskeeda, and social media channels including Facebook, Instagram, etc. played a pivotal role in driving this, reaching millions of users and amplifying brand visibility.
