Coming season will see them control coverage through the Fanzai app
14 July ~ Swindon Town appear to have extended their press ban to all local media, as they aim to control all their PR through a new app called Fanzai this season. The Swindon Advertiser has been barred from the club since the start of the year, with no reason given, and will only be allowing the mandatory post-match press conference with the manager outside of the Fanzai app. Fanzai is the “social platform for football players and football clubs”, though Swindon appear to be the only club who have signed up to it. You can read more details about the ban on the Press Gazette website here, as well as the views of Sam Morshead – the head of sport at Total Swindon – here.
