Swansea City has become the latest football club to announce a digital partnership with Liverpool-based Rippleffect.
The Trinity Mirror-owned digital agency will now work with the Premier League side to conduct a full review of its existing web platform before a complete re-launch ahead of the 2017/18 season.
The Welsh club is looking to enhance its UK and global presence by introducing a cutting-edge, fan-focused and commercially successful website.
Rippleffect already works with Premier League clubs Everton, Arsenal and Aston Villa.
Its remit includes devising a long-term, multi-channel strategy for how the Swans can maximise the potential of digital in engaging fans and supporting its commercial objectives, primarily around ticketing, hospitality and retail.
Leigh Dineen, vice chairman of Swansea City, said: “We’re delighted to confirm Rippleffect as our digital partner. As one of the most reputable digital agencies in sport, with an impressive track record for delivering world-class fan experiences, we believe this will be an important partnership for helping us achieve our ambitions. Our plans will focus on creating a website that becomes the preferred digital destination for Swansea City fans.”
Ben Hatton, managing director of Rippleffect, added: “Over the last 14 years, we’ve been trusted by some of the best known and most successful clubs in British football. We are proud to add Swansea City to that list and look forward to helping the club make the most of digital whilst providing the fans with a website they can be proud of.”
