The Elite Ice Hockey League's social media channels were among the fastest-growing across Europe in the 2019/20 season.

We logged the followers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in August 2019 for eight leagues to see how our channels performed over the season. The seven other leagues were: SHL, Liiga, Czech Extraliga, DEL, EBEL, Ligue Magnus, and the Champions Hockey League.

On Facebook, the EIHL was Europe's top increase for followers- going up by 10.21% from August to March!
