The @PhilliWings will become the first American sports team in history to do this with their name plates, which is all to do with raising awareness and engagement with the social networking site.

Each player will be given special training on using Twitter and will be required, if they have not got one already, to set up and maintain a twitter account to help interactions with fans, as well encourage people to ‘Tweet’.

Following the game the special edition shirts will be auctioned off to raise money for @AmericanCancer.

@PhilliWings are aiming to bring home their record seventh NLL Championship and begin their campaign against the Rochester Knighthawks in mid January.

Here’s a clip of the Wings in action from 2010.
