With the 2017/18 Championship season kicking off this weekend the EFL has launched a social media campaign to celebrate the global fan-base following EFL clubs week in and week out.
Fans visiting EFL.com/iFollowEFL have the opportunity to tag their location wherever they are in the world and upload an image showing their support for the Blades. Fans will also have the opportunity to share their image across Facebook and Twitter under the hashtag #iFollowEFL. Fans taking part and showing their club colours before 4th September will be entered into a draw to win tickets to a Bramall Lane game, with travel and two night's accommodation, a Mitre Delta Replica EFL Football and a copy of FIFA18 Icon Addition courtesy of EA Sports, sponsors of the ground-breaking new digital streaming service, iFollow.
It is hoped that the campaign will celebrate the truly global nature of EFL clubs and the amazing support United 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.
This weekend marks the first Sky Bet EFL fixtures to be live streamed on United's new digital platform, iFollowBlades, which is set to revolutionise the way Unitedites overseas follow the Blades.
