Guide to Twitter Hashtags for Premier League Clubs

In the parlance of Twitter conversations in the 21st century, it’s important to know what the hashtags are for the Premier League clubs you’re conversing about on Twitter. To do so correctly will help you broaden your audience to people who search for their news and conversations on Twitter by using the club’s Twitter hashtag.

Interestingly, there is no defined list. Some clubs use more than one hashtag. Some even use one of three. And some clubs use the same ones. For example, both Stoke City and Swansea use #scfc (confusing, eh?). And in the case of Wigan Athletic, if you search for tweets using the #wigan hashtag, you’ll find people tweeting about not only Wigan Athletic, but also Wigan the rugby league club.

So, here are the hashtags for the 20 clubs in the 2011-12 Premier League season:

  1. Arsenal: #arsenal or #afc
  2. Aston Villa: #avfc or #villa
  3. Blackburn Rovers: #brfc
  4. Bolton Wanderers: #bolton or #bwfc
  5. Chelsea: #chelsea or #cfc
  6. Everton: #everton or #efc
  7. Fulham: #fulham or #ffc
  8. Liverpool: #lfc
  9. Manchester City: #mcfc
  10. Manchester United: #mufc
  11. Newcastle United: #nufc
  12. Norwich City: X
  13. Queens Park Rangers: #qpr
  14. Stoke City: #stoke or #scfc
  15. Swansea City: #swans or #scfc
  16. Sunderland: #sunderland or #sfc
  17. Tottenham Hotspur: @tottenham or #coys or #thfc
  18. West Bromwich Albion: #wba or #baggies or #wbafc
  19. Wigan Athletic: #wigan
  20. Wolverhampton Wanderers: #wolves
