The faces of the Sky Bet Play-Offs 2014

At the start of the year I joined the Football League and took on a job all about content and social media – working with colleagues in the digital team to improve and evolve the League’s online content.

In the last week or so I’ve been busy using ScribbleLive to tell the story of the play-offs, where teams in the Championship, League 1 and League 2 fight for a place at Wembley and the chance to win promotion.

One of the best bits of this live storytelling effort has been engaging with fans on social media – primarily on Twitter and Instagram – in real time to ensure that our coverage of the play-offs puts the fans front and centre throughout. This has led to me discovering lots of fantastic fan pictures shared on social and has proved to be one of the best parts of the whole experience.

So I decided to create this post to share a few of my favourite pictures from people I have talked to on social during the play-offs. I think they sum up perfectly the incredible emotions our fans experience at this most dramatic time of the season. Excitement, nervousness, and joy. I hope you like them.

Big support from Sweden, Sölvesborg for this evenings clash against Wigan #weRtogether
