In conjunction with Lunar New Year, New York City FC has expanded its global online footprint with the launch of its new Chinese website and social media platform, Weibo.
These are the only Chinese-language digital platforms in Major League Soccer (MLS).
In addition to the Club’s official site in English and Spanish, the Chinese website and Weibo will allow the Club’s growing fan base from across the globe and in New York City to access to its digital content in real-time in their native language.
New York City FC President, Tom Glick, said:
“The Chinese community is important to New York City FC as we continue to gain supporters from New York City’s local Chinese groups and increase our global fan base from locations abroad. We are proud that our new platforms will allow us to interact with our Chinese speaking supporters.
We are also fortunate that our home is New York City, a place where one million Chinese tourists travel every year. We are seeing ‘soccer tourism’ increase tremendously so we welcome these visitors to come to one of our matches at Yankee Stadium while they are enjoying the world class shopping, dining and sightseeing that New York City has on offer.”
