Did you know the Atlanta Braves are the oldest team in the MLB? Beginning in 1871 in Massachusetts as the Boston Red Stockings, the Braves have had a rich history with all time greats such as Hank Aaron, John Smoltz, and Greg Maddux. The Braves continue to draw on their past as inspiration for the present and future in an effort to continue their success as one of the premier Major League Baseball Clubs. This success is evident both on the field and off, especially with the team’s social media. With 1 million Instagram followers, 1.31 million Twitter followers, and 2.13 million Facebook followers, the Braves have developed a substantial social media presence across the 3 main platforms (4.44 million followers total). These accounts provide passionate Braves fans with excellent resources to stay connected to the team.
For Falcons fans, the 2016 season was a rollercoaster of emotions. MVP Matt Ryan carried a historically good Falcons team to the Super Bowl, and, unfortunately for Falcons fans, everybody remembers the Patriots’ epic comeback. Now two years removed from their Super Bowl run, the Falcons are struggling to replicate that success.
Still, they know what it takes to make it to the big game, and they have the pieces to make the trip back. Falcons fans have been carried along for the ride and are justly hoping that their best days are ahead. And now, in a brand new, 1.2 billion dollar stadium, the Falcons fan experience is better than ever. Falcons fans are looking forward to the future, and, knowing that the 2018 season has plagued their team with injuries, they hope that this is just a bump in the road to victory.
