So, which club do you think has the biggest fan following? Some would say Manchester United, others would say Real Madrid and a few would even say Bayern Munich. There isn’t really a way to find out the exact number of fans of a specific football club… Or is there?
Maybe Facebook can give us a good sample for our “research”. Lets go over to FB and find out the top ten number of members of the official pages of football clubs:
- 10. Olympique de Marseille, (600,402)
- 9. AC Milan, (1,143,639)
- 8. Arsenal FC, (1,514,132)
- 7. Chelsea FC, (1,591,585)
- 6. Liverpool FC, (2,458,618)
- 5. Manchester United FC, (2,548,425)
- 4. Fenerbahce, (2,993,859)
- 3. Real Madrid CF, (3,698,480)
- 2. Galatasaray SK, (4,470,165)
And finally, the football club with the biggest fan following on Facebook is:
- 1. FC Barcelona, (4,601,294)
There you have it. A rough idea of who has got a bigger fan base throughout the world. At least the part of the world that has spent enough time on Facebook to find the way to their favorite football club’s page.
