The purpose of this study was to examine the use of Facebook by members in the T_T Badminton Team page as a brand-management tool in the badminton clubs. The current research involved a content analysis of the branding, marketing, and management strategies provided on the page in the three main places such as Labor Cultural Hall, Ky Hoa Sports Club and Le Hong Phong High school Sports Club in Ho Chi Minh city. The data analysis was conducted with SPSS version 19 using descriptive statistical analysis. Frequencies and percentages were reported for all categories.
