The 2022 World Cup is approaching and the sports vibes are beginning to be felt. At this time it is common to see how companies associate with athletes to promote their brand. What is the true relationship between sport and social networks? More specifically, what is the effect that athletes have on the interaction with brands? To answer that question, Sortlist has carried out a study of social networks of different companies in different sectors and study the difference between the interaction in those publications that included athletes and those that did not.These are some of the conclusions of the study:• The food and beverage sector continues to be the sector in which the most brands have higher engagement in posts with athletes than in posts without them.• Automotive brands do not seem to engage their audiences well when athletes appear in their posts.• Luxury brands mostly fail to generate engagement in posts with athletes.• Although food and beverage brands have a higher engagement rate, people engage more with hygiene brand posts ne and personal care used by athletes. • Finance and cryptocurrency brands that use athletes have a higher engagement rate on their posts with athletes than on posts without them.
