U's Celebrate Global Fanbase With #iFollowEFL

18 August 2017

With the 2017/18 Sky Bet EFL season in full swing the EFL is running a social media campaign to celebrate the global fan-base following EFL clubs week in and week out.

Fans visiting have the opportunity to tag their location wherever they are in the world and upload an image showing their support for Colchester United.

Fans will also have the opportunity to share their image across Facebook and Twitter under the hashtag #iFollowEFL.

Supporters taking part and showing their club colours before 4th September will be entered into a draw to win tickets to one of Colchester United’s home games this season, travel and two nights accommodation, a Mitre Delta Replica EFL Football and a copy of FIFA18 Icon Edition courtesy of EA Sports.

The campaign celebrates the truly global nature of the EFL and the amazing support clubs such as the U's receive both at home and overseas.

The 2017/18 season will see the EFL broadcast or streamed into 166 countries with a reach of almost 614 million households across Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Oceania; reinforcing the EFL’s reputation as one of the most watched competitions in world football.

In addition, this season marks the first time Sky Bet EFL fixtures are available to be live streamed on Colchester United’s new digital platform, iFollow, which is set to revolutionise the way U's fans overseas can follow their club.
