  • Fandi (Ahmad) was one of the top mentions on social media during the Opening Ceremony, proving that he is still an athlete Singaporeans hold close to their hearts.
  • Topics that kept social media buzzing were the Opening Ceremony, SEA Games, Fandi and #InspiringSG – a hashtag created by Singtel as part of the SEA Games sponsorship.
  • Deloitte, also one of the sponsors for the SEA Games, saw a significant increase on social media with their name mentioned frequently during the Opening Ceremony.
  • Whilst consumption and anticipation around the SEA Games began increasing steadily since May, a few weeks prior to the event, sponsors of the event such as Singtel and Deloitte saw increases in social media mentions around their names or hashtags mainly during the Opening Ceremony itself.
