Survey Finds NASCAR, NFL Tops In Sponsor Recall Among TV Viewers

The highest sponsor recall on TV was among NASCAR and NFL viewers, according to a recent study conducted by research firm Repucom. Consumers were asked if, over the past 12 months, they could recall seeing or hearing any sponsorship while watching a game/event on TV. This would include signage on or around the field of play as well as any sponsored segments of the broadcasts, such as a halftime show or play of the game. NASCAR ranked first with 51%, while the NFL ranked second at 50%. MLB, NBA and college football rounded out the top five. Commercials were not included (Repucom).
