With the 2017-2018 English Football League season about to kick off its nine month, 46 game journey this weekend, there’s never been a better time to jump on board and join in the National Adopt an English Football League Team Week.
Anyone can support a Manchester United, or an Arsenal or a Liverpool, how boring, all they do is spend many millions of pounds on players and occasionally win stuff. And even if you do follow a big team, why not jump on board for an English Football League further down the football pyramid and prove just how much of a football fan you are.
There’s 72 teams from three division to choose from, and with the BeIn Sports deal on Fox Sports in Austtralia entering a second year, you’ll have another team to follow and watch, and if you aren’t with Optus it may be the only English Football team you get to see this year.
Think of when you see the results in the paper on a Monday morning or visit the BBC website, you’ll now have a reason to care.
So join the campaign for our National Adopt an English Football League Team Week, and if you need some help on which team to choose, why not follow our National Adopt an English Football League Team Week Guide to picking a team.
