RESULT Sports created a new and groundbreaking Global Benchmarking Analysis of football clubs in Digital Media.
This pioneering initiative was created by RESULT Sports to bring together the world’s leading digital football clubs, comparing their individual digital evolution during the past year (2016).
More than 600 football organisations from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America and North America have been analysed, evaluated and monitored. The leading fifty football clubs are revealed here, but this blog article will be extended and more clubs shown.

Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Manchester United take Top Three positions.
