Niall Coen, Founder and CEO of Snack Media, said, “We are delighted to bring Hashtag United into the Snack Media portfolio. The club is a great example of the growing crossover between traditional sport and social media. Our job is to broaden the reach of the Hashtag United brand from their massive following in the entertainment world of YouTube into the fan engagement world we are able to offer”.

Seb Carmichael-Brown, Commercial Director at Hashtag United, added, “It has been something we have been looking at for a while now. However, finally thanks to Snack Media we are going to once again have a website and location for our audience to get all Hashtag United info in one place and a home for some more bonus/written word content that wouldn’t work on YouTube or our other platforms. Snack’s experience in building sites like this and all of the other functionality this new partnership will give us is a massive win for the club and we can’t wait to see how our fans react to it.”
