The official club website was launched the day before what would turn out to be a historic match against Genk in 1999. It soon became a regular feature and is now in its second decade. The website, with its daily news, live match coverage and extensive photo archive along with its interactive features such as prize giveaways, polls and the chance for the fans to rate player performances, is our primary means of informing the fans. More and more football fans from Slovenia and abroad who want to be up-to-date with events in our club visit our website, as we are the primary source for all news regarding NK Maribor. But we did not stop there. We completely overhauled the website design so that it is even more user-friendly. A study shows that we are by far the most popular website of any sports club in Slovenia. Our goal is to retain this title for years to come. We will continue to do our best to fulfil the needs of our esteemed guests.
The positive news about the popularity of our website has given new momentum to our plans. We felt there were enough fans who wanted to learn more about how the club functions, so in March 2008 we started publishing the club magazine which was met with positive feedback. This is not just because of its colourful pages and its likeable graphic design. For every fan in love with the colour purple, the magazine that is published quarterly, with a circulation of 2000 copies, is a must. The magazine costs 2.90 EUR (free of charge to season ticket owners). Fans can get their copies before matches at Ljudski vrt, and it is available at the stadium bar during the matches, and it is also otherwise available at newspapers stands and in stores. Immediately after the publication of the first issue, fans started subscribing to the magazine. This is why we do our best to make every new issue better than the last. The point of the magazine is not to make a profit, but to raise the profile of our sponsors and of the club itself.
NK Maribor's official Facebook page that was created in collaboration with our fans is pushing the limits with each passing day. Fans from all over the world visit our page where we publish the latest news you will not find anywhere else.
Although the profile has been up since October 2008, it bears the official date of 6 January 2012 and it currently has more than 31,000 members who help create the page through their comments and discussions. On it you will learn all there is to know about the purplest football club in the world.
Our official Facebook page is the best proof that we are on the path to even greater things.
We are promoting the club through numerous other projects. We celebrate special events with special publications: such as the magazine we published to mark the 10th anniversary of NK Maribor's participation in the Champions League. Over 32 pages, we relived the moments from the unforgettable European adventure and the games against Genk, Lyon, Dynamo Kyiv, Lazio and Bayer Leverkusen. Players from Maribor's golden generation spoke of the sensation they caused in European football, we heard their stories from behind the scenes and found out what they are doing 10 years after their amazing success story... This priceless publication about the club's greatest achievement is available for 2 EUR.
