English soccer team blocks all of Hungary from its Facebook page

Friday January 23rd, 2015

English soccer club Notts County has taken the extreme measure of blocking the entire country of Hungary from its Facebook page after they were flooded with comments from the country.

Notts experienced a surge in Facebook activity after signing Balint Bajner, receiving 1,700 likes in two days, and lots of comments from Hungarian fans, according to BBC News,

The problem is the comments would not stop and they all said the same thing "No Bjaner, No Party," a meme the fans began during the striker's time on the bench at Ipswich Town, according to The Mirror.

The club's head of media Jamie Dixon said the comments were interfering with fans experience and so they had to take action.

"We had to take the rather drastic step of blocking Hungary," said Mr Dixon.

"Hopefully, [it is] just a temporary measure. We have set up a Hungarian Magpies page, which is proving quite popular so hopefully that'll take some of the traffic away."

Seems like the smart move from a ticket sales perspective would be to move the team to Hungary.
