Radio City Scores Big: 1.3M Cheers for Team India in Citroen Cheer for India Campaign

The campaign, which blended automotive excellence with cricketing fervour, aimed to unite fans in cheering for the Indian Cricket Team during the recent Cricket World Championship. Citroen along with Radio City team invited everyone to join Mahendra Singh Dhoni and the rest of India in celebrating what truly matters—supporting our cricket heroes and making informed vehicle choices that reflect our shared values and aspirations.

The campaign, a first-of-its-kind title claim, saw enthusiastic participation from listeners across Bharat. Over the course of 23 days, Radio City amassed these millions of cheers from 24 cities including Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Surat, Nagpur, Kolhapur, Sambhaji Nagar, Delhi, Lucknow, Jaipur, Varanasi, Patna, Jamshedpur, Kolkata, Chennai, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Vizag, Vijayawada, Bangalore, Vadodara, and Kanpur. The widespread enthusiasm spanned diverse age groups and regions, showcasing the unity and fervor of Radio City’s listeners in supporting Team India.

The successful execution of the campaign relied heavily on the on-site activations conducted at strategic spots in every city using the Citroen C3 Aircross & the launch of the Dhoni special edition Citroen C3 Aircross. These events attracted natural crowds, inviting people to experience the new SUV and record their cheer for Team India. Additionally, the radio channel conducted 24 dealer visits, one in each city, as part of dealer delight activities. These visits aimed to boost footfalls at dealerships, encourage test-drives, and ultimately drive purchases of the Citroen C3 Aircross.

Ashit Kukian, CEO of Radio City, expressed his pride in the achievement, stating, “This record-breaking campaign illustrates Radio City’s expertise in providing unique marketing solutions to our partners. Since we have extensive market penetration, even within the most remote locations in India, our commitment to connecting with our listeners and creating impactful, memorable brand campaigns has become the cornerstone of our success. We are thrilled to have associated with Citroen and to have garnered such immense support for Team India.

Moreover, the campaign that reached a remarkable milestone of 1.3 million cheers not only showed support for our cricket heroes but also enabled consumers to make informed vehicle choices that reflect our shared values and aspirations.
