Yesterday saw Kaizer Chiefs break the two million ‘Likes’ mark on Facebook, which is a statistic that no other club in the Premier Soccer League comes close to.
Social media has become an integral part of marketing football clubs, not only that, but fans are always up to date with the latest news via social media platforms.
Here are some Facebook and Twitter figures for the 'Big Three' of South African football.

Chiefs may be leading the social media front in South African football, but there is no doubt that Pirates and Sundowns have kept their fans happy on these platforms too.
