Premier League FB Campaign : Best of Advent Calendar- December 2014

The Barclays Premier League is the world’s best marketed football league.
Everybody has heard of its teams, religiously idolize it’s star players and actively form fan clubs despite sharing no geographic lineage with England’s clubs. Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool each boast of a fan base of millions putting most of Europe’s big clubs a gear behind.
One of the reasons for this marketing ingenuity is the active social media presence of the league and its clubs.
The pages are constantly updated, multi media interactive posts constantly shared and innovative campaigns introduced to periodically boost the Premier League’s international appeal.
One such campaign was set in motion in the month of December last year, where each date of the month was linked to a statistic involving the numerical value of the date.
