Trophy bus trip trends on social media

10 March 2016

The red bus hosted a special “guest” on board today – the Barclays Premier League trophy!

Together with sports media and influencers, the red bus welcomed the trophy to Cape Town ahead of the #BPLLive fan park experience later this month.

Starting at stop 2, The Clock Tower, the group enjoyed scenic views and on-board commentary as they made their way to Cape Town Stadium, Sea Point Promenade and Signal Hill.

At every stop, media and invited guests took the opportunity to capture photos of themselves and the BPL trophy, to share their excitement and experience on social media.

No doubt they had lots of fun hopping on and off the open-top bus, as the official hashtag #BPLLive trended in the number one spot in Cape Town and also made the top ten trends across the country.

Here are our favourite tweets of the morning:

he Barclays Premier League is a professional competition, contested by 20 of the best English soccer clubs – including Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.
