GONE are the days of au­to­graph books and pro­grammes – one in three foot­ball fans now want a selfie with a foot­baller!

Phone company HTC polled 4,000 Euro­pean foot­ball fans and re­search has shown that 64 per cent of fans now want to keep a dig­i­tal re­minder of their match day ex­pe­ri­ence, with videos of the crowd and photographs with friends a popular choice.

And it’s not just kept on your own elec­tronic de­vice ei­ther with over three-quarters of fans shar­ing their dig­i­tal me­mento via so­cial me­dia such as Face­book, twit­ter and In­sta­gram.

It looks like it’s not go­ing to stop any time soon ei­ther with a fifth of fans want­ing a 3D per­son­alised video mes­sage from a player by 2025.

So, next time you’re sit­ting next to some­one who is al­ways tak­ing pic­tures, just re­mem­ber that you’re the one in the mi­nor­ity!
