Executive summary

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is the most popular media property in India.

Volkswagen knew that this could be the brand's ticket to the big league. However, Volkswagen wasn't the first brand to think of the IPL. Many big-budget car makers had used this platform through ad spots and sponsorships. Vodafone's challenge was to be different.
