FanHub announce first six club partnerships

FanHub have confirmed their first six official partnerships with professional football clubs – an exciting moment for all match-going fans of those six clubs, and potentially more in the future.

A seventh partnership has also been teased and is believed to be a side currently in League Two.

The Six clubs

These [partnerships are a huge step for FanHub, who will be hoping that they are the start of a journey which sees the company collaborate with even more clubs in the future.

For now, though, the list remains at six clubs, and is as follows:

  • Heart of Midlothian (Hearts)
  • Hibernian
  • Aberdeen
  • Derby County
  • Portsmouth
  • Dundalk

Who are FanHub?

With the mission statement “the app that rewards your loyalty”, FanHUb is designed to appeal to regular match-going fans. The app celebrates such supporters and encourages them to ‘check-in' at matches, which is used by the organisation to track their loyalty.

The more often a fan does this, the higher up their club's respective leaderboard they will climb – with the ultimate aim of becoming their side's number one fan. Additionally, fans can also predict their team's lineup for upcoming matches for extra loyalty points.

These points accumulate and can be traded in for real rewards – the first of which have been confirmed as a pair of free tickets to the “top three fans of every EFL club” at the end of every month. No wonder supporters of the six aforementioned clubs are welcoming the news of their partnerships.

Potential issues

One of the main issues, however, appears to be that whilst four of the six first FanHub partnerships are with Scottish clubs, there has so far been no mention of what rewards supporters of those teams can expect.

Given the fact that EFL fans can expect to win free tickets, that is likely to also be the case for Scotland-based fans – although that is yet to be confirmed by the company.
