Aberystwyth Town FC, who revealed that their online media platforms had received an incredible six million online views during 2016/7, are recruiting for a Social Media Sponsor for the forthcoming season.
The Club has three packages available, Gold, Silver and Bronze, and access to six million views a year, provided by the Gold Package, would represent a significant opportunity for many local or national businesses.
One tweet by the Club earlier this week, cheekily insinuating that the Black and Greens were looking to sign Lionel Messi, has gone viral, receiving 28,000 responses and creating 1.5 million impressions within a few days.
During the season we had a number of memorable moments, with the arguably the best being the unveiling of the fantastic 3G pitch at Park Avenue after years of hard work by former Chairman Tony Bates. We witnessed some memorable Black and Green performances, most notably at home against Rhyl and away at Llandudno and Carmarthen. We also became the proud owners of a ‘blue tick’ having had our Twitter account @AberystwythTown verified, which is awarded to high profile individuals and organisations.
The most visited pages on our website were again our first team fixtures, squad profiles and the 3G booking page. The most read articles were the announcements of signing fan favourites Dan Alfei and Malcolm Melvin, along with new first team manager Tony Pennock joining the club from then English Premier League club Hull City first as Assistant Manager and then as Manager.
Club Marketing Director Thomas Crockett said, “Online interest in Aberystwyth Town and the Welsh Premier League is huge, and growing very quickly. Our Media Team is working hard every single day of the year to develop our online presence in response to a huge demand both within Wales, the UK and overseas.”
