Set up in the winter of 2013, The Online Rule analyses the world of digital marketing in football. The site’s remit is predominantly football in the UK, however with the occasional glance at other sports and countries where appropriate.

You’ll find articles about fan engagement, innovative uses of connected technology, and how social media is removing the boundaries between players and fans. The site’s aim is to celebrate good marketing attempts and cover the wider issues around digital marketing and social media in sport, highlighting examples of good practice.
