  6. 6. Social Media & Sports Abdul’s story “Imagine a Manchester United fan in Kuala Lumpur called Abdul. He has never been to Europe, let alone to United’s stadium Old Trafford, but he owns a pirated club shirt, scours the internet for United news and watches their games on TV in a local restaurant. And yet the club’s total income from Abdul is zero. In fact, for decades United didn’t know he existed” Football and Social Media. Simon Kuper, Finantial Times, 2014

I don’t give it to you. It’s mine.” The company will have to fork out. A database of 25 million fans could be worth billions of euros”.
