Pittsburgh Power Press Release
PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Power announced today their most ambitious promotional schedule in team history. Starting with the home opener on Saturday, March 23 against the Utah Blaze, Power fans will receive premium giveaway items at each CONSOL Energy Center game along with unlimited $1 Smith’s hotdogs and $1 7UP fountain drinks.
Pittsburgh Power fleece blankets will be given to the first 5,000 fans on March 23 and will kick off the nine-game giveaway extravaganza, courtesy of Trib Total Media. Other Power promotional items include caps, umbrellas, footballs, freezer mugs, t-shirts, earbud headphones, cooler bags and aluminum water bottles, all to the first 5,000 fans.
“We’d like to thank all our sponsors for making these items available to our fans,” Power co-owner Matt Shaner said. “It’s been an extremely productive offseason as we’ve refocused our marketing efforts completely to enhance the in-game experience.”
All Power fans will also be able to enjoy unlimited $1 Smith’s hotdogs and $1 7UP fountain drinks at every game this season.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer these incredible values to our fans this season,” said NFL Hall of Famer and Power co-owner Lynn Swann. “I’d like to recognize our friends with the Dr. Pepper, Snapple Group and Smith’s Hot Dogs, as well as the Pittsburgh Penguins, CONSOL Energy Center and Aramark, who helped us facilitate this amazing opportunity.”
Giant Eagle Family Fun Packs will also be available for all nine Power home games.
