LINE launches Manchester United official account for Filipino football fans


LINE, the world’s leading mobile platform with more than 490 million users, has launched an official account for the world famous football club, Manchester United (@manutd), to better update its Filipino fans through the global messaging platform.

“When Manchester United became one of the hosts for a soccer camp in the Philippines last April, there was an initiative to boost football’s popularity in the country,” said Greg Kim, head of LINE Philippines. “So we brought football closer to every Filipino by connecting them through LINE.”
Manchester United gained popularity since its kickoff in 1878. It has carried two championship titles in the FIFA Club World Cup, three championship titles in the UEFA Champions League, and became a twenty-time champion in the English Premier League.
