Sport FEI Sports Forum, Forum, 27-28 4-5 April April 2015, 2016, IMD IMD Lausanne Lausanne MLS came up with a standard international offering. 5 minutes before kick off, the first half, half time highlights, the second half, 5 minutes of post match interviews and analysis MLS realized the importance of data/infographics MLS contract with broadcasters states managers and two players from each team as selected by broadcaster MUST be available post match interviews MLS allowed cameras into places NFL/MLB never had (referees, changing rooms) and were open to new technology such as heart monitors and even vest cameras Session6: Key Note Case Study II: ICC World Twenty20 - Cricket

Sport FEI Sports Forum, Forum, 27-28 4-5 April April 2015, 2016, IMD IMD Lausanne Lausanne ICC realized that traditional cricket was dying-no attraction for 15-25 year olds Created 20/20 format to appeal to that audience. That age group has a problem with concentration & patience. The short version much more attractive to them It is glamorous (cheerleaders & famous personalities at the ground, etc.) Sponsors are very attracted to it Viewing figures for 20/20 nearly double those of 5 day test matches Shortened format lives hand-in-hand with traditional format
