What is it?
- Facebook is the most widely used social media platform in the UK, so chances are the people you want to communicate with are probably already using it
- It also has a number of tools that can be useful for clubs and leagues like the ability to set up an official club or league page and invite players, officials, friends and other clubs to become ‘friends’
- You can also use it to create diary events and host easily accessible photo galleries
Facebook allows you to create events, invite people to these events and then publicise them. By creating an event, be it for a game, a quiz night or a working group to consider rule changes for the season ahead you can manage RSVPs and see how many people are attending, making planning a lot easier.
Create A League Page
Launching a page allows you to bring your players, sponsors and volunteers into one online community to share updates and content (e.g. clubs photos and videos) about your league
Add Photo Albums
One of Facebook’s top functions is the ease with which you can share and organise multiple photos and albums. This is a great tool for sharing and creating memories, the best way to engage people with your league. You can also ask attendees to share photos with their friends to gain larger audiences for your events.
Create A Group
Groups can be public or private. They give members a forum for sharing whatever they choose from a funny picture to a serious announcement
The morning of the game can be a busy time. Facebook allows you to schedule posts in advance, so you can set up a game day announcement earlier in the week when you have more time.
