Hoang Anh Gia Lai FC was Asia’s most viewed club on YouTube in February.

In a February report, website Deportes & Finanzas said Hoang Anh Gia Lai FC (HAGL) continued to be the most watched Asian club on YouTube. The club was also eighth in the world in terms of YouTube views.

HAGL had 5.59 million views in February, surpassing giant clubs like Tottenham Hotspurs, Arsenal and Bayern Munich. Although this number is less than in January when the club had 6.05 million views, it still retained the first spot in Asia.

Another Vietnamese club, V. League 1’s 2018 champion, Hanoi FC, had 4.3 million views, to take third position in Asia and 15th in the world.

On the top 20 list worldwide, Barcelona FC was the most watched club with 20.6 million views, followed by Manchester United, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

HAGL FC was the champions of V-League in 2003 and 2004. In V. League 1 2019, the club has just three points after three games, with two losses and one win. Earlier this year, they sent two of their key players on loan to foreign clubs: striker Nguyen Cong Phuong to South Korean’s Incheon United and midfielder Luong Xuan Truong to Thai club Buriram United.
