MyFootballClub is an English Industrial and Provident Society that sought, starting in August 2007 to recruit at least 50,000football enthusiasts across the globe to purchase an English Association Football Club. The Club’s premise is to allow its paid members to control the club through a democratic voting process online. The pitch, team selection, and player transfers and even the fields where the games will be held are all done through the internet by the members.
From 2008 to 2013, MyFootballClub owned 75% of Ebbsfleet United F.C.. With its purchase of a majority share of Ebbsfleet United, MyFootballClub became the first online community to fully run a professional sports club in history.
On November 13 2007, MyFootballClub announced that it had agreed in principle to purchase Conference National Club Ebbsfleet United which was preciously known as Gravesend and Northfleet until 2007. It was on January 16 2008 when the Club told the public the terms of its proposed purchase of Ebbsfleet United.
According to Liam Daish, Ebbsfleet United’s manager:
“Everyone has worked wonders to get this club into the top half of the Conference. We all agree the club needs something extra to take it to the next step. As a football fan, I think the MyFootballClub idea is fantastic. And as the coach, I look forward to the challenge of working with thousands of members to produce a winning team. Alan Kimble and myself are 100% committed to making this work.”
Following the union of the club and the recently purchased team, Ebbsfleet United still has its say when it comes to decision makings for the games etc.

With the growing audience and praise for the excellent coverage, the American television is now doubling down on football. Pertaining to soccer as the “next big sport in the USA” – and will always be, US television is now investing on the market of this league. After the World Cup, in which people turned out to be crazy in love with this sport, NBC has decided to take over and present Premier League to the viewers.
In October 2012, NBC acquired the broadcast and digital rights to the Premier League. Hitting the ground running last season with a comprehensive package of network, cable and online offerings that offered subscribers to the network’s NBC sports channel live on every single game. Out of the 212 countries worldwide that air the Premier League, USA is considered the most significant one.
After a successful debut, the dedicated sports channel NBCSN grows its daily audience share by 80%. This made the network as the fastest growing sports network in the US. This was proven to be even better after the last day of the 2013-14 Premier League. The audience appreciated NBC using multiple cable channels to deliver the games live and simultaneously.
This season, the network has also signed up the Men in Blazers, Michael Davies and Roger Bennett – two expat Brits whose irreverent podcasts have become a cult staple of the US game’s popular culture, and who achieved wider prominence this summer with their “panic room” broadcasts as part of ESPN’s confident World Cup coverage.
Because of this success, the network only promises to provide quality coverage every season of the Premier League.
