Website[edit]

The club's website, mcfc.co.uk, was relaunched in July 2009. Unlike the majority of other football club websites, the site does not feature adverts. The website was designed by Poke, and a number of awards since its relaunch.[1]

On 17 July 2013, the club announced the release of ten new websites (effectively just domains of the main website), which would duplicate the content of the club's main website but in a variety of other languages, particularly Oriental in origin.[2] Combined with the previous release of Arabic- and Mandarin-language websites, this makes mcfc.co.uk the website with the broadest global reach of all football websites, serving the official languages to 160 countries and therefore readable by approximately 80% of the world's population.[2]
