The Lingerie Football League recently kicked-off their new season and if the popularity of their new social media platform is any indication, fans are taking notice.
Adage Technologies, a leader in website and application development, partnered with the Lingerie Football League (LFL) and Maximum Fantasy Sports to create the revolutionary LFL “Fanzone,” a new social media outlet for league fans looking to interact with their favorite players and teams.
Launched in July 2010, over 15,300 users are already signed up to participate in the LFL Fanzone. Fans can customize their profile with their personal information, pictures, photos, videos and links to their favorite players and teams. Users can then ‘friend’ other profiles, chat on message boards and connect with specific teams, players and league officials.
“We wanted the LFL fans to feel they were part of the organization, as well as receive the most up-to-date news on teams and players,” Roy Chomko, President of Adage Technologies, said. “With the Fanzone, users can create their own profile and immediately start connecting with the league through several social media tools.”
The site also features regular blog posts from the players to keep their fans updated on what they’re doing, when the next game is or even the status of their latest injury. For new users looking to learn about the league, the Fanzone features a league blog, team rosters and highlight videos of the most recent action.
“As professional sports continue to grow, so has the way organizations connect with their fans,” said Mitchell S. Mortaza, Founder and Chairman of the Lingerie Football League. “The response to our Fanzone has been phenomenal, and it represents how teams and players can use social media to bring fans closer to the action than ever before.”
