Like for like figures show that traffic to www.footballtradedirectory.com has trebled in the past 12 months comparing like for like stats. With approaching 600,000 unique visitors in 2011, the FTD has become the football resource website in the UK.
As Managing Director George Moss expands:
‘We believe the mixture of news, video, events and networking has created a vibrant on-line community. Websites have to put people in touch with each other and we have created a platform that enables that with ease.
‘We have always had a free to view policy for clubs and associations and our weekly newsletter – which has been revamped to mark our move to new offices – is distributed to over 25,000 subscribers every Friday. There is no subscription fee and the sign on process is quick and easy.’
As announced earlier in the week, Sportsglobal UK Ltd, owners of the FTD are moving from their Blackburn home of seven years, to Chorley FC’s Victory Park. New telephone number is: 0333 777 5724
Moving to a football club seems a natural progression – our reason for being is to serve grass roots football as well as the pro-game, and we feel it is a great fit for us. It also shows that Clubs can obtain additional income by leasing spar facilities to football related companies.
‘We have a great relationship with many clubs and in particular Chorley FC where we sponsored a match last season. We think the move sends out all the right messages for both parties and we are looking forward to moving in next week.’ said Commercial manager John Booth.
