Creating significant social media buzz, whether positive or negative, is the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League’s (MPBL) way of making an online impact.
Last night at the historic Araneta Coliseum, the MPBL kicked off its second run with the Anta Datu Cup.
From ten teams coming from Luzon, the league has grown exponentially with the addition of expansion squads from all over the country. A total of 26 teams are set to slug it out for the coveted Datu Cup championship trophy.
Most of these teams have tapped the power of social media to form their fanbase and engage netizens in various platforms. “Hashtags” have been utilized by MPBL teams for announcements, photos and other posts in their respective social media sites.
FOX Sports Philippines scoured through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the catchiest team hashtags in the MPBL today. In no particular order:
Mandaluyong El Tigre – #GrowlAsOne #MandaMentality
Pasay Voyagers – #TibayNgPasay #AllOutPasay
Muntinlupa Cagers – #DefendTheCage
Zamboanga Valientes – #VivaValientesArriba #SardinasRepublic
