We continue to reap the rewards of our firm commitment to the internationalisation of the club. 2023 has been a particularly fruitful year in terms of one of the most populated countries in the world, China.

The club's account on Weibo, the most popular social network in China, acquired more than 500,000 new followers in 2023. This brought the total number of Chinese fans following Sevilla to 1,285,000, and that number has since surpassed 1.3 million in the first few weeks of 2024.

In 2023, we grw 64% on Weibo, a percentage that underlines our position as the club that has grown the most in the last calendar year on this social network, ahead of clubs such as PSG, Barcelona, Tottenham, Roma, Real Madrid, Villarreal, Monaco, Real Sociedad and Borussia Dortmund. Our growth on Weibo over the past two years is 117% and, in 2023, all metrics in terms of post impact grew compared to 2022, and was the account's best year since its inception.

Meanwhile, the progression on China's social networks also extends to the video platform, Douyin, where the club's account has almost reached 150,000 followers. By adding the followers on both platforms, we are now the Spanish team with the fourth-most followers in China after Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid, with accounts on  Weibo and Douyin, and also on Wechat. 

Our growth on the main social networks in China can also be explained thanks to a strategy based on local content with nods to local culture and customs, collaborations with local influencers and the production of live programmes with native presenters who bring the daily happenings of Sevilla closer to the fans in the Asian country. 

As a sign of this, we are planning to develop several special initiatives in February to commemorate the Chinese New Year. To celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Dragon, the club will organise several special events to wish its Chinese fans the best during the match against Atlético de Madrid on Sunday 11th February.

The growth in digital platforms is only part of the work that we has been doing in China. Since March 2023, it has been working with ISS (International School Services) and are active at the Shekou International School in Shenzhen, China, where sports coaches carefully selected and trained by the club offer extracurricular activities to students, following the club's exclusive methodology of talent development and training. They expect to finish the season with twice as many players in their different teams. As part of the programme, tournaments are also planned and a new Summer Camp will be held this summer.

Commercially we also have three official regional sponsors in China for the current 2023-2024 season: 1717, Kubet and Nova 88, which further strengthen our ties with the country's football industry.

We encourage all our fans to get to know the culture of China better with the Spring Festival Gala broadcast by CMG this Friday starting at 1:00 PM Spain time through this link. Recognised by the Guinness World Records as the most-watched television program worldwide, this gala has become a cultural celebration that spreads the spirit and joy of the New Year celebration among Chinese communities worldwide.
