Swans named most popular in Wales

Swansea are the most popular football club in Wales, according to a new survey examining social media followings.

Sportswear providers Decathlon have gathered data on the number of followers of each team across platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Tiktok and YouTube.

It found that the Swans were Welsh football's most popular club, boasting 2.8 million followers.

Cardiff were second with 1.1 million, while Newport County had 197,000 followers.

Will Taylor, UK Football Leader from Decathlon, said: "Many football fans get extremely excited and passionate when it comes to local derbies! It’s interesting to see the regional clubs popularity on social media and how this might tie to the clubs successes."

Did a 9 year old child write that as part of their research project in school?

"X club has most followers on Facebook so X club is most popular in Wales"

Incredible.

I'd be interested to know how many of those "followers" are from Wales and how many are not.

Swansea might be the team based in Wales with the most social media followers, but they're not the most popular team in Wales. There's a reason Sports Direct and other sport retailers sell Manchester United merchandise and Liverpool merchandise whilst stocking little to nothing to do with Swansea.

So, using location of supporter as a measure, would you consider Man City being relegated under Brian Kidd a bigger club that Fergies Utd simply because they had more followers living within the city boundaries?

My son is one of that generation who don't even follow a club. He comes to the swans with me but his other football love is Lionel Messi. He wanted a Barca top until Messi left an now he has a PSG top with Messi on the back.

It's a strange old world, some of the players have become bigger than the clubs.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

We are a bigger club than Cardiff now. That seems fairly obvious. Seven years in the Prem, and that's seven years in the Prem as a model club rather than a cautionary tale, has given us a much bigger fanbase. You just have to look at the attendances for the less attractive fixtures.

They may have a bigger stadium but if they can't fill it it's irrelevant. Queens Park had a capacity of 50,000 and gates of 500.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

Is that why you're forever defending Liverpool?

Nobody who is alive today can recall the 1927 game.

Of course, Swans have the most fans now.
Also best kit is all white/whiteandgold.
