Shillong Lajong Football Club have taken several initiatives to promote football across the country and it is truly a proud moment for the Club who have been working continuously hard in reaching out to their fans globally, after hitting One Lac likes on their official Facebook page which is the number one social networking site in the world.
After the 2-1 win over Dempo SC on the 21st of this month, the North Eastern outfit crossed 1 Lac likes on its Facebook Page. In 2009, the club had less than 1000 likes on the popular social networking site and 4 years on, it has impressively grown a hundred fold.

The app is available for free download on I-Tunes and Google Play Store for Apple and Android users respectively. The app includes all the latest Shillong Lajong info like first team, game previews & reviews, score updates, standings, youth team, pictures, videos and lots more.
The Facebook page and Mobile app are a couple of the many platforms, the club utilizes to connect with the fans, also known as the Lajong Faithfuls, and they are considered to be integral for the future of the club.
