PBA NorthPort Batang Pier's former franchise Powerade Tigers or Coca-Cola Tigers has had a successful run in the Philippines Basketball Association League winning 2 championships which led to its fan following in the league.

Since they took over, Batang Pier has been the same team and that's evident from their performance in the PBA championships. If you are interested in PBA news about teams, you can read other articles in All PBA Results of this blog.
