We are delighted to announce the club has been nominated as a finalist for the 2013 Starcount Social Star Award in recognition of the club's use of social media.

Starcount is a specialist website which ranks the world's top brands based on their popularity and fan engagement, to produce the ultimate social media chart.

With a social media following of nearly 25 million fans across the globe, Chelsea has been identified in the Sports category alongside Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United as being the very best at engaging fans across social channels.

The club will find out if we have won the top award when all Social Star global category winners are unveiled on May 23 in Singapore.
