Recently appointed to spearhead the combined 70-strong media operation at Liverpool Football Club’s Digital function, Matthew Quinn has been in and around sports streaming, tech and content over his 20+ year career working with, amongst others, Manchester United, Spurs, Sunderland, The FA and Perform.
In this role, Quinn oversees content, social media, production, media tech, media products and media licensing teams with a focus on club-owned products like LFCTV GO, the club’s official OTT service. A product that was born back in 2001 when LFC was streaming content before people could really consume it, audience and revenue has grown over the years and LFC’s content and digital products are often used as the benchmark within the football industry.
Alongside 2 x 24/7 linear TV channels, social platforms with a combined audience of 100m including the leading Premier League YouTube channel, Quinn and his staff continue to push boundaries with achievements including being the first football club to launch on YouTube Memberships, taking SVOD across global platforms to the widest fan base possible.
Through a difficult season of cancellations, restarts and fixture congestion, Quinn’s teams have managed to keep entire their content operation working remotely whilst growing viewership to all-time highs.
