Eight GRV Media football websites enjoyed their best ever months in July. Arsenal Insider, Geordie Boot Boys, Hammers News, Molineux News, Nottingham Forest News, TBR Football, The Chelsea Chronicle and United In Focus all hit multi-year highs, following the business end of the Euros and the penultimate month of the transfer window.
Dan Coombs, GRV’s Global Head of Sports Content, said: ‘We have been working very hard to further improve the quality of our football coverage, and it is great to see that some of our club sites are seeing more fans consuming our content and engaging with our platforms’.
Coombs continued: ‘Although GRV Media is building out its sports coverage to include NFL, NBA, Tennis and Motor Sport, these new records demonstrate just how important football content remains to our business’.
The third quarter started well for GRV Media, with July coming in as the third best month in the 20-year history of the business. The company continued to invest in people last month, with headcount increasing by around 5%. Two or three positions remain open.
GRV Media’s network of sites saw further growth in Q2. During the second-quarter 280m visitors came to our own and partner sites, consuming 450m page views.
