We're not entirely sure it's a great business move to flood your market with so many comps, but the Ogden Raptors are giving away a million free general-admission ducats this season.
We're not entirely sure it's a great business move to flood your market with so many comps, but the Ogden Raptors (short season; Pioneer League) are giving away a million free general-admission ducats this season.
The Raptors, in a promo with McDonald's and Comcast, are giving away the tickets for 34 of the team's 38 game. Fans can pick up 30 tickets at a time under the terms of the deal.
"We understand that many families will face difficult choices when it comes to their summer time entertainment," said Raptors President Dave Baggott. "We want these families to cross us off their list as we have you covered. We could never do this type of program if it wasn't for the participation of the great folks at McDonald's. We hope you buy something when you visit them to pick up your free tickets."
Fans can also upgrade the free general admission tickets to $10 reserved box seats for only $5; the Raptors will also throw in a $2.50 food voucher.
It's a pretty audacious promo: there certainly are headlines to be made with a million free tickets, especially in a sponsored promo.
