Football fans invited to help Manchester Evening News develop new sports app

The Manchester Evening News has invited football fans to help it design a new sports app over the next two weeks.

The MEN has four dedicated Premiers League football writers – two for Manchester United and two for Manchester City.

They will be working with the in-house digital product team to develop the new app.

MEN editor Rob Irvine said: “We’ve built a huge audience of loyal, local Manchester United fans by putting them at the heart of what we do.

“Our process for creating this standalone fan app follows the same spirit of engagement. We want fans to tell us what content they want, when they want it and how they want it.

Alice McKeegan, the MEN’s head of football, said: “Manchester United matters to millions of supporters around the world and what those millions of supporters feel about Manchester United matters to us.

“We are really keen to hear the views of fans so we can give them the type of content they want and ensure that the app enhances their supporting experience.”

If this project works fans may be invited to help design football apps at other MEN titles.
