Which Argentinian social media platform has made the biggest impact on the country’s football team?
Posted On July 9, 2021
Buenos Aires – Argentina’s national football team has a lot of social media following and many people follow it, but one social network has been the most important to the team, according to Argentina’s team management.
On Saturday, Argentina beat Brazil 2-1 to claim a spot in the 2018 World Cup final and a place in the finals.
Argentina, the world’s seventh largest economy, is one of the few developed countries where the team has gained a foothold.
It’s also one of only three football countries in Latin America, along with Paraguay and Uruguay, that has hosted a World Cup since 1998.
“In our case, it’s the team that has been so successful and the one that is most successful, because of social networks,” said Sergio Fernandez, who is president of the Argentina National Football Club.
“We had a lot more people following us than Brazil did in the last World Cup, but that was due to social media.”
The team is not alone in its success.
It’s also managed to attract big names such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who are both based in Argentina.
But it is not just the players who have been able to gain followers and social media likes.
There are many people who follow the team’s Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram pages.
And, like the team itself, it is also a platform for fans to express their opinions.
“The social media platforms have made a big difference, not only for us but for the country as a whole,” Fernandez said.
“When we have a big match, we get people who go to the stadium, they come to the games, they follow our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages.
They talk about football, about the national team and about the country.”
The fans’ reactions are very important for the team.
They form part of the social fabric and contribute to the social capital of Argentina.
It all started with an anonymous tweet in 2013, in which the Argentina national team said it was considering boycotting the World Cup.
The team’s manager, Carlos Alberto Zuniga, was furious and went public with the tweet, saying it was a “sad, pathetic” act.
Zuniga said that the team wanted to take part in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar but the World Bank refused to finance it.
Arriving at the final stage of qualifying, the team was denied a ticket to Qatar, so it instead went to Brazil and was crowned the champion.
Argentina also won the 2018 Copa America, which led to its debut as a team.
The Argentine Football Federation (AFF) has now awarded the 2019 World Cup to the country that won the tournament in 2018.
“There’s always this sense of history,” said Argentine Football Association president Luis Fagioli.
“There is this sense that something was achieved.
The fact that the people that voted for us had a good time has made this feel a lot bigger than it was in the beginning.”
The results are important, but it is the social impact that really matters, he added.
“We had no idea how important social media was to the players and the fans,” Fagio said.
“I think that if we don’t take advantage of social platforms, we will never have this level of success.”
