Proud Partners of the International Cricket Council
Nissan are proud global partners of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 taking place in England and Wales this summer.
The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is the most prestigious event in cricket and the third most watched global sporting event, with 1.5 billion TV viewers. This is the first time in 20 years that the World Cup is being hosted in England and Wales, and with England as favourites to lift the trophy, it’s expected to be a sell-out.
SWEEP THE NATION
ICC Cricket World Cup – Sweep the Nation
It’s time to #SweepTheNation
This Summer, Nissan will use technology, cricket fans and social media, to amplify the excitement of cricket lovers and even convert some cricket doubters, ensuring that Cricket World Cup fever reaches every corner of the UK. The excitement of the Cricket World Cup, with its modern, colourful, multi-cultural traits and a tournament on home soil for the first time in 20 years, where England are tipped for victory, all create the conditions for the biggest summer for cricket we’ve ever seen in this country. Nissan have created the Nissan Excitement Algorithm, which will track, measure and analyse social sentiment towards cricket and the Cricket World Cup and power a road trip which aims to ensure World Cup fever sweeps the nation by rewarding people who use the hashtag #SweepTheNation with the chance to win match tickets and VIP experiences. With Nissan’s expertise in intelligent mobility - which uses technology and innovation to make driving more exciting - we are perfectly positioned to amplify the excitement the tournament will create.
Nissan are proud global partners of the UEFA Champions League, bringing fans closer to the game and allowing you to enjoy all the action.
