One of the things we love at CM is football. We love the world cup and last year we wrote about the World Cup in China. The main reason we love football is because I (Miguel) played football for about 15 years when I was growing up. I played on an all Mexican team for about 2-3 years because I was “good enough” to play on their team.
So, here at CM we love football and our favorite team is the Dutch National Team, again because I am dating a Dutch girl and the team is really good. We also like Arjen Robben because he is pretty awesome.
What does any of this have to do with Chinese social media? Well, the good people (we don’t really know if they are good, but we hope so) over at the Mailman Group put together this great infographic about the Top Footballers on Chinese Social Media. We have known about the Mailman Group for sometime, but we have never really interacted with them.
“They are a digitally savvy team dedicated to transforming sports, entertainment and tourism in China.” They do social media marketing and other marketing stuff and they have been around for a while now. They have a company blog that you can read if you want to know more about their business. They actually update it often and provide interesting content about sports in China.
Since it is a Friday night and a holiday this weekend, we thought this would be a fun infographic to share and we hope you have a great weekend. Do you think any other players should have made the list? Who is your favorite team and player?
