Which team is the top of the Premier League Fan Pages?
The battle for the top spot in the Premier League of Facebook fan pages looks to be won before the season has really got going. With over 18 million fans, Manchester United are sitting clear at the top. The next closest rival is Arsenal with a respectable 7.3 million fans.
The bottom position is currently occupied by Sunderland with just 28,000 fans.
But which team’s fan page is showing the fastest growth? In the two weeks since the season started, Manchester City have increased their fan base by 3%, the fastest growing of all the teams. But will it stay this way? Last week Stoke City were the fastest growing fan page, we’ll check in again in two weeks to see how the table stands.
