TAMPA, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Sports Commission (TBSC) is excited to announce a new groundbreaking initiative, which will feature what is believed to be the first comprehensive, community-wide sports social media directory within a local market.
The digital directory, built to enhance fan following for the Tampa Bay sports community through social media, currently houses listings and links to a series of Tampa Bay sports teams, in addition to key channels for events and venues. It’s the first phase of a multi-stage concept to encompass all of Tampa Bay’s sports social media engagement.
“Our goal is to provide fans with a one-stop shop that allows them to easily follow all of their favorite teams and players from around our sports community,” said Rob Higgins, Executive Director of the TBSC. “These organizations and individuals have such a great story to tell and we’re pleased to play a small role in helping to amplify them socially.”
Inclusion from professional franchises such as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Lightning, Rays, Storm, and Rowdies, in addition to members of the University of South Florida Department of Athletics, affords fans the ability to connect to any one of their hometown organization heroes with the click of a button. Twitter and Facebook profiles will be updated regularly by the TBSC, and will range from front office members to players and mascots, in hopes of appealing to fans of all ages.
To locate and follow your favorite Tampa Bay sports icons, events, or venues, navigate to TampaBaySports.org and click on the ‘Digital Directory’ tab at the top of the main page.
