Athletes and sports personalities poured their support to ABS-CBN after the National Telecommunications Commission issued a cease and desist order against the network after its legislative franchise expired on May 4.

ABS-CBN channels including S+A, which exclusively airs sports leagues including the UAAP, NCAA, the Premier Volleyball League, MPBL, ONE and ABL, signed off Tuesday night.

Athletes turned to social media to show their support to the network who covered their journey, glorious victories, painful defeats and off court stories that brought them closer to fans.
