United States ( - December 02, 2012)

Digital Sports Group head of operations Matthew Tait believes that the recent domination on the field courtesy of the star studded line up has seen key player's, such as Micah Richards Facebook page increase dramatically with the total weekly reach increasing by over 20%.

The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Manchester City defender since it's launch and is becoming more and more popular with each week that passes, with a rapidly growing community of fans keen to hear all the latest news on their favourite player. The official PFA Facebook page along with Micah Richards player profile on provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.

Micah Richards is back running know as he begins his return from injury. The Manchester City full back has now been told he can begin running, and should be in contention for first team action as early as Christmas. Micah has had a turbulent start to this season, however the vice-captain of Manchester City will no doubt be more willing than ever to return to the first team.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini will look to ease Richards back into the squad, too ease off the defensive crisis. Key players such as Pablo Zabaleta and Maicon have both had torrid injury problems this season, and Mancini will be keen on the return of Micah Richards.

Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Micah Richards really has no shortage of fans after his performances for Manchester City this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.”

“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Micah.”

DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site
