The Partick Thistle media team have been shortlisted for a Football Business Award in the category of Best New Player / Contract Signing Reveal Campaign.
The nomination comes for the announcement of the signing of Scott Tiffoney last summer which saw over 1 million video views on twitter.
The following is from the Football Business Award nomination:
Tiffoney: I think he’s a loan now … that was the running joke when Partick Thistle signed Scott Tiffoney on loan in March 2021.
Then, Thistle were slumped in sixth place in Scotland’s third tier, falling eight points behind leaders Falkirk a month of the most extraordinary season left to play.
This was the club’s lowest point, even after a year during which they suffered demotion via a controversial vote, were awarded funding that disadvantaged them to the tune of £350,000 and had not been able to welcome a single supporter to a game in 12 months.
Then along came Tiff. Just six weeks on from his arrival, the Jags stormed to the League 1 title, largely inspired by the winger who assisted and scored relentlessly, including a strike in the 5-0 title clincher against rivals Falkirk.
The clamour to sign him grew. And when it happened, it led to the most successful piece of content in the club’s history.
I said what about – we’ve signed Scott Tiffoney.
In Thistle supporters’ eyes Scott Tiffoney is one in a million.
And a million – and then some – is just how many lapped up the signing announcement of the summer.
The awards take place in London tomorrow and our opposition is Birmingham City, Chelsea, Leeds United, Manchester City and Rangers.
We wish the media team the best of luck – you can read info about all the finalists here.
