Medvescak among most popular sports clubs and associations in the region
SPORTO magazine has published their ranking of the TOP 20 most popular sports clubs and associations in the region on Twitter and Facebook in April 2015, and among them was KHL Medvescak Zagreb. Croatia's most decorated hockey club took 5th place on Twitter with 26,554 followers, and in 8th place on Facebook with 171,209 likes. Medvescak is also that most popular club in the 'other sports' category in the region, which doesn't count soccer and basketball clubs and associations.
Zagreb's Medvescak has also seen a steady increase in fans and followers on social media. The number of followers on the club's official Twitter profile has increased by 87% in the last 6 months, which puts Medvescak at a high 2nd place by fan growth rate!
''Hard work always pays off. These numbers show that we're doing a good job together and that we're on the right path. Of course, there is always room for improvement and our wish is to make use of all those opportunities. What excited me the most is the fact that in the last six months our Twitter follower rate has gone up 87%. With this we've achieved one of the goals we've had from the start of the season. Hockey has gotten close to top national sports like soccer and basketball on social media. The bar is set high, along with responsibilities and expectations that have to be justified. I would like to thank all the fans who follow us because they're the reason we are doing all of this'', said Medvescak's digital communications coordinator Ana Calic.
First place on the Twitter list of most popular clubs in the region was taken by the Croatian Soccer Association (56,032), and on Facebook by FK Crvena Zvezda (740,154).
