STE...fans turns 11 years old today and just one year has gone by since it completely changed its style passing to a new, better organized and more graphically attractive content management system platform. Like we hoped, the last one has been a year of huge growth for STE...fans.
This is mostly due to the fact that we have a new, more populated, Facebook page that just reached the target of 14,500 fans and boosted our traffic enormously.

But that's not the only factor: updates have become more regular. Since the start of 2012, we've already published 42 news (which means 6 per month, not including the old articles...), 25 videos (some of them exclusive), 12 photo albums. Our Twitter account has overcome 300 followers - just like our Youtube channel that has gone past 1,000,000 views -, the fanlisting and the newsletter have recently broken the wall of 500 fans.

STE...fans will surely keep on growing. We aim at publishing more and more exclusive content, to become the only meeting point for old and new Edberg fans. If we want to achieve this, your help is very important. For every senior tournament or exhibition Stefan takes part in we should have someone who provides exclusive reports, pictures, videos. This should not be impossible to reach: our social media are quite big by now and all the people who go to tournaments should know that they have a place where they can share their memories with a big community. Whoever wants to contribute stuff for the site (old photos, old clippings of newspapers or magazines, personally recorded videos or even just their personal experiences of Stefan Edberg) should know that it can be done just contacting us through the form placed on the website. Old memorabilia are particularly appreciated...
We also want to keep on travelling for tournaments around Europe: our next goal is to go to Zurich next March, should Stefan's presence be confirmed. And we want to keep on meeting fans, just like it happened in Halle last June.
Moreover, we have a new project we want to develop later this summer that we hope you will be interested in it. But we still don't want to unveil it now...
