make sure you read these Terms & Conditions of Use carefully.
The MDM App is a photograph and video sharing platform created for you the football fan, enabling you to show the world your allegiance to your club by sharing your match day experiences with fans of your club, with followers of your opponents’ clubs and with your friends who are your Squad Members. Wherever you are in the world on match day, you can share your own build-up, in-play and post-match experiences as well as viewing those of fellow fans and opponents’ fans.
Different from other social media, you won’t need to be “friends” with that bloke in the lower tier to view his MDM posts. Who’s watching your team around the world? If they’re on MDM, and they’re a fan of your club, you’ll see their posts no matter where they are on match day.
You can comment on posts, like them, share them, flag them if they offend in some way!
Please read the rules contained in our Rule Book below so we don’t red card you and send you off for an early bath!
Support and respect the MDM Community and all its users by being a good Fan. Please abide by the rules or get red carded. MDM retains the right to suspend or delete your account, without contest, where we deem it to have been misused.
To be able to participate on MDM all fans must be over 13 years of age. If you are aware of U13s and want to report their presence, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
