Case Study

Texas Rangers Grow
Sponsorship Revenue

The Challenge

In 2020, the Texas Rangers faced playing in an empty stadium, with half the normal number of home games, followed by the curveball of hosting the World Series. The Rangers’ leadership saw that they needed to use data analytics to grow and preserve partnerships in the face of much uncertainty, and to solve these key challenges:
Difficulty leveraging measurement data to prove to partners that the Rangers were driving value game by game throughout the season.
Effectively measuring new asset opportunities to drive value for existing partners and expand relationships. 
Fully understanding the value of makegoods and underperforming assets during a reduced season with no fans.

The Solution

The Rangers turned to Relo Metrics’ sponsorship analytics platform to track and optimize their entire partner portfolio. Relo provided The Rangers:

  • A single solution analytics platform that offers deep insight, including near real-time data to identify and track make-goods and new sponsorship assets.
  • Partner-ready downloadable recap reports developing strategic partner touch points.

"Relo has been instrumental in helping us shift away from traditional end of season reporting, to a proactive, high-touch partnership model, resulting in the expansion of several partnership deals. *We now have all the data at our fingertips* so we can focus on driving results for partners that result in increased sponsorship revenue."
