Goodform and Rugby League World Cup 2021 (RLWC2021) continue a successful partnership to help ensure the biggest and best Rugby League World Cup in history, which will take place between October 15th and November 19th 2022.
In trailblazing fashion, RLWC2021 have adopted an insight-led approach to selling event tickets from the get-go, with Goodform continuing to generate and utilise exceptional levels of fan insight to power this.
Sportswise, Goodform’s Customer Data Platform for the tournament, supplies RLWC2021 with ‘always-on’ understanding of digital engagers, ticket purchasers, and data patterns. Goodform will also deliver fan research pre and post tournament, which will encompass purchase and attendance attitudes and behaviours, and event experience.
Goodform’s data analysis and research provide RLWC2021 with a truly holistic audience understanding that is used to create the best possible event experience for all engagers and ticket purchasers before, during and after the tournament.
Furthermore, audience insight is actioned by Goodform to deliver personalised and targeted marketing campaigns, and to continuously inform an ever-evolving ticket sales strategy that was integral to targets being surpassed in 2021. This strategic approach and success were recognised by the Sport Industry Awards in 2021, with Goodform and RLWC2021 shortlisted for the Data and Business Impact Award (read more here).
