An estimated 3.4 billion people are expected to tune in worldwide – basically half the planet. Even with the USA not qualifying this year, millions of Americans are expected to follow closely.
This month-long extravaganza gives brands a platform to reach consumers both in the US and around the globe in a number of unique ways. From superstar players to soccer-themed programs to partnerships with FIFA, the Cup’s organizing body, marketers will look to connect with this massive worldwide audience.
Looking back at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil gives us a roadmap of what to expect.

Expect consumers to be interacting with brands via social media and for many of them to be watching the game online. A large audience, engaged consumers and an event that only occurs every four years is a companies dream to market to.
