How we do it

Our unique technology tracks logo impressions across broadcast TV, online streaming and team- and fan-owned social media accounts across all platforms. We then use a Media Value Percentage (MVP) methodology to measure what it would have cost to buy an equivalent amount of reach. We do all of this in less than a week, and we use the following six factors to keep score:


Clarity of sponsor’s exposure


Background vs. foreground exposure


Percent of exposure in view


Size of sponsor relative
to entire frame


Position of sponsor

Sports signage has always been viewed as a traditional media buy that’s valued on the television exposure it generates. But in today’s media environment, that’s no longer the case, as fans increasingly turn to digital channels.

Advancements in image recognition and artificial intelligence make tracking the social value of sports signage possible, giving brands a level of transparency that wasn’t imaginable just a few years ago. Here’s what you’ll learn in this fast-paced guide:
