(PRWEB UK) 9 February 2013
Digital Sports Group head of operations Matthew Tait believes that the historic win over Brazil Wednesday night has seen key England players such as Micah Richards' Facebook page increase dramatically with the total weekly reach increasing by over 20%.
The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Manchester City defender since its launch and is becoming more and more popular with each week that passes, with a rapidly growing community of fans keen to hear all the latest news on their favourite player.
The official PFA Facebook page, along with Micah Richards player profile on football.co.uk, provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.
Glen Johnson played at right back for England last night in an impressive outing, but Micah Richards will be keen to add to his international cap tally. The Manchester City right back will bring in a different dimention to the England back line, and has strong communication links with goal-keeper Joe Hart.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say, “Micah Richards really has no shortage of fans after his performances for Manchester City this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.”
“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Micah.”
DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
