SWEEP THE NATION
ICC Cricket World Cup – Sweep the Nation
The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is the biggest sporting event happening this year in the UK. This Summer, Nissan used technology, cricket fans and social media, to amplify the excitement of cricket lovers and even convert some cricket haters, ensuring that World Cup fever reached every corner of the UK.
Throughout the duration of the 7-week tournament, our Nissan Excitement Algorithm tracked, measured, and analysed social sentiment towards cricket and the Cricket World Cup to not only gift tickets, but also give fans money-can’t-buy experiences. Over 600 tickets were given away to lucky competition winners, sweeping the nation with Cricket World Cup excitement.
Nissan demonstrated their Intelligent Mobility technologies at the ICC Cricket World Cup Final as the Nissan Half LEAF delivered the prestigious Cricket World Cup trophy into Lord’s, the Home of Cricket, ahead of the 2019 final.
Nissan’s all-electric concept ice cream van – a modified e-NV200 van - was on the ground at the ICC Cricket World Cup Final giving away free ice creams to lucky winners. With its 40kWh battery, the ice cream van incorporates a collection of Nissan’s clean-energy technology, with refrigerators powered by roof-mounted solar panels and Nissan energy ROAM units.
