ABS-CBN Sports has apologized to Ateneo for inadvertently showing a video clip congratulating De La Salle for winning the UAAP Season 76 women’s volleyball crown, according to a team insider.
The apology was in order after a clip was unintentionally shown on Friday afternoon "congratulating De La Salle for a ‘four-peat’" - a message that was supposed to be shown in the event the Lady Archers wins in Saturday’s do-or-die match.
A similar clip congratulating Ateneo has also been prepared in the event that the Lady Eagles win Saturday’s Game Four, according to the source.
Diehard volleyball fans had mixed reactions upon seeing the clip or learning about it through social media that came a day before what is expected to be a classic Game Four at the Mall of Asia Arena.
The Lady Eagles forced a rubber match for the title after a 25-21, 25-23, 18-25, 16-25, 17-15 win on Wednesday.
