This Time Last Season…

Man City are running away with it this season. Unbeaten in 18 games, with the only points dropped a draw against Everton in their second game. Looking back to last season though, things were looking quite different at the top of the Premier League. City had already been beaten three times and were sitting in third spot, 9 points behind eventual champions Chelsea.

The biggest gains at this stage have been made by Burnley, who after a surprise run of form are currently in a Europa League-worthy sixth. This time last season, they were eight places lower in 14th. Leicester, now in 8th, have made a jump of the same size having languished in 16th spot around Christmas 2016.

The Growing Impact of Social Media On Sports (Infographic)

Source: Betting Sites

The drastic change in the social media landscape over the last ten years has had a major impact on all aspects of our lives and sports industry is in no way an exception.

Today, sports events and social media go hand in hand. We’re witnessing an era where every team, league, or sports association has at least one social media profile where they announce all important information. Moreover, it became impossible to scroll down your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram account during a major sports event and not have your news feed overwhelmed with information, real-time gifs, vines, or memes about it. Also, almost every sports event or show has a related hashtag which creates a relationship with the audience and brings a fast response. Athletes use social media to establish their name, communicate with their fans, announce their activities, and even promote brands and make money, as they have millions of followers.

The infographic below, created by the Betting Sites team, will help you understand the growing impact of social media on sports and learn many interesting facts that you probably didn’t know.
