Getting Intimate…With LA Galaxy
One of the great things about MLS – and one of the things that has always been great about MLS – is the fan’s accessibility to their favorite players. These last couple of years have seen a rapid increase in players – both big-name stars and up-and-comers – take to social media to share their soccer-related thoughts as well as their day-to-day doings. It all comes together to create a product that fans not only support, but also identify with.
The Los Angeles Galaxy – arguably the biggest brand in the league – is no different. In addition to the hard-working social media folks in the front office whose updates are dispatched morning, day and night, several LA Galaxy players share the Twitterverse with their fans. This list of accessible players includes two Rookies of the Year and, perhaps leading by example, the team’s captain. A sublisting of my personal favorites are after the break.
