Super Bowl Scorecard Brand Exposure Without the Commercials

There was plenty of buzz about the commercials during Super Bowl XLIV, but many brands also received audience exposure during the game with in-stadium, scoreboard, or other brand placement.

Repucom, which incorporates Nielsen’s television audience ratings data with their measurement of in-game sports sponsorship, analyzed all in-program brand exposure across all content during the Super Bowl broadcast. Excluding standard television commercials, the analysis tracked all television graphic and venue brand exposure for all four quarters of the game, the Hyundai Kickoff Show, the entire halftime segment, and the Intel Super Bowl Today Post Game Show.
