The 2009-10 season could be an historic one at Bayern – and that extends to the club’s off-field activities too, where Germany’s leading club is pursuing a remarkable internet treble. The official FC Bayern website set a new record in the month of March will an astonishing 70 million page impressions, a widely-accepted measure of the number of requests to load a single page of an internet site, also known as page views (PVs).
Just a month later, fcbayern.de in its five language versions (German, English, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese) dramatically improved on its own record. The site recorded a whopping 84.5 PVs in April 2010, emphatically confirming its position as the most popular single football club website in the world. By way of comparison, the number two official site operated by Manchester United amassed 60 million PVs in March.
We at fcbayern.de will continue our pursuit for records in May. With the huge level of interest in Bayern’s quest for the Bundesliga title, the DFB Cup and the Champions League, your favourite FCB website could be on course for a famous treble of its own.
