)-- Leading social voice service Bubbly is announcing the addition of the English Premier League championship team, Manchester City Football Club (MCFC), to the service where star players will be releasing exclusive content to their Bubbly followers. Though a partnership with MCFC, millions more users globally will gain access to this fresh content and an exceptional peek into these athletes’ lives.
Bubbly is a social voice service that allows users to share their voice with the world through short recordings with their friends, fans, and followers. Users can access the MCFC Bubbly page on the web at http://bubbly.net/MCFC, on their smartphones by downloading the Bubbly app at http://bubbly.net/, or on their feature phones.
Commenting on the new Bubbly account, Diego Gigliani, Director of Marketing, Media and Fan Development for Manchester City, said:
“As the Club continues to attract fans from across the world and our global community grows, we will constantly seek out new and engaging ways to connect with supporters, particularly through the use of popular social media platforms, like Bubbly.
“Whether it’s through pre and post-match interviews on the pitch, or getting to know their favorite players off it, Bubbly will enable the Club to have more frequent, short-form touch-points with our fans across the world, bringing them closer to the club and helping to build deeper relationships.
This sentiment was shared by Bubbly CEO, Thomas Clayton, who added:
“We’re ecstatic that Manchester City has chosen to connect with their fans using their real voices on Bubbly. With the new season just around the corner, it’s a fun time to check out what these guys have to say about what’s ahead.”
Most messaging services only come in the form of mobile applications, but Bubbly accommodates the over 90 percent of more than 4 billion consumers in emerging Asian markets that are still using feature phones. The service offers access to voice recordings from actors, sports stars, comedians, musicians, and other celebrity bloggers including Amitabh Bachchan of Bollywood fame, SM*SH of Indonesia, and many more.
