Fundraising By Social Media : The Eibar Model

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The Spanish club launched a social media campaign, Defend Eibar, that saw their shareholder count soar from 1,800, based in Eibar alone, to 10,000 worldwide, raising the capital required. With a budget of only €16m and a stadium capacity of just 5000, Eibar were the smallest club in the league. They finished in the bottom three and were relegated on goal difference. They were subsequently reinstated when Elche were found to have broken the Financial Fair Play rules. Two games into the new season, Eibar are currently joint-top of the league

This imo is the way forward and certainly worth investigating.

Of course it is the way forward.

FC United of Manchester used this type of fundraising to try to pay for the cost of their new football stadium.
