This is a call out to the millions of fans around the world, to come together to be apart of a movement. With the use of crowd-funding, supporters will make a pledge to buy Ronaldo’s Manchester United shirt. We will then use this money to buy him back.
“Aimed at Manchester United football fans around the world, built on the crowd-funding concept, we are asking fans to make a pledge, conditional on Manchester United signing Ronaldo. Each fan is to pledge £55 to buy an authentic Manchester United Ronaldo 7 shirt…”
This is interesting. I’m a huge fan of power of social media and things like crowdsourcing and what all of that means to the world as a whole. Most recently we have seen a rise in Kickstarter campaigns from really popular actors like Zach Braff using the power of their fame to get movies and passion projects produced primarily funded by their fans in social media, so it will be interesting to see if there is a way to look at social media and supporters making noise in the same way. I’m curious, and will be following to see if this turns into anything.
