The #MACtion Social Suite will provide a select group of fans the ability to network in their own private, Wi-Fi enabled suite. There will be a total of 12-15 people in the suite each night of the MAC Basketball Tournament and those chosen will be able to cover the game from a fan perspective. Fans across the MAC footprint will be able to interact with one another in the suite as well as with other fans via social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, etc.
Fans will be chosen based on an application process on MAC-Sports.com and will be selected based on their love for MAC Basketball and social media. Those in the #MACtion Social Suite will be provided with flip cards, game programs, game notes and a hashtag sheet so that they will be able to join the conversation with other fans and talk about the games that evening. Those chosen will also be able to attend the postgame press conferences and see the inner workings of the MAC Basketball Tournament.
Last year's Social Media Suite was a huge success and hopefully something that can be built on this season. If you are a fan of social media and MAC Basketball then this experience is definitely for you. We look forward to seeing you at the Q!!
