Case Study – MLB’s Padres Drive 1,005% Lift in Game-Day Foot-Traffic

by James Heller


What started out as a preseason campaign, The San Diego Padres’ OOH (out-of-home) marketing campaign with Wrapify extended through the entire 2019 MLB season. By creating a geofence around their home field, Petco Park, Wrapify measured the entire audience (and their devices) that attended home games. Wrapify’s attribution suite drove a dramatic lift in foot traffic to home games throughout the season.

With San Diego being a hotspot for tourism and local attractions, The Padres wanted to re-engage their existing fan base as well as drove an increase in home game visitation.

  • • Drive measurable foot traffic into home games
  • • Effectively retarget the exposed audience online
  • • Measure and attribute Wrapiyf-exposed audience
  • • Leverage SWARM to target key touches and events


Devices that were exposed to a Padres’ wrapped vehicle were ~10 times more likely to attend a game than non-exposed devices.


The Padres leveraged SWARM successfully growing their impression numbers quickly. A SWARM is when multiple wrapped vehicles gather at a specific place and time, creating a huge brand moment nobody can forget!


Showing a 1,005% lift in foot traffic versus the non-exposed audience at Petco Park, this means people that saw this car advertisement were 10 times more likely to attend a game.

We have people coming to games and having a great time, but no way to go back to track how they got there. Being able to know who comes in contact with our advertising and whether they actually enter the ballpark is huge for us.
