LINE, the social networking/messaging service which has taken Japan by storm, now has another official account: FC Gifu


The account has been set up to directly inform supporters about upcoming events & news, as well being a useful tool to keep people directly informed about match conditions. For example this month’s game against Ehime FC, where typhoon level rains & strong wind threatened the fixture, would have been a useful time to have LINE because it goes directly to the phone, as opposed to Twitter/Facebook where users have to actively check it.

And, it is another arm to FC Gifu’s burgeoning use of social networks. One which could prove popular with fans.
