SEASON TICKET HOLDER DRAFT TO BE HELD IN OCTOBER
WILKES-BARRE, PA – A handful of lucky Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins backers will have the opportunity to purchase the hottest ticket in the National Hockey League through the Penguins Season Ticket Holder Draft, which will take place during the club’s October home games.
The 2011 Bridgestone Winter Classic will take place on January 1, 2011 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. The league’s marquee event will feature Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins facing off against Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals in one of the most hotly contested rivalries in the NHL.
The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins have reserved the right to purchase 400 tickets to the game, and will be distributing the chance to buy those seats exclusively to their season ticket holders.
The Season Ticket Holder Draft will be a weighted lottery, with full season ticket holders receiving six (6) chances to win per seat, 22-game season ticket holders receiving three (3) chances to win per seat, 12-game season ticket holders receiving two (2) chances to win per seat, six-game season ticket holders receiving one (1) chance to win per seat, and flex book holders receiving one (1) chance to win per flex book purchased.
Fans will receive vouchers for the drawing with their season tickets. These vouchers must then be returned to the Penguins Team Store (located at 40 Coal Street in Wilkes-Barre) or dropped off at the Penguins Fan Assistance Booth during the team’s two preseason home games or opening night contest, where they will be placed into the drawing.
The winners will be pulled live on the ice during Penguins home contests throughout the month of October. Those winners will then be able to purchase tickets for the Winter Classic through the Penguins allotment. Winners are not required to purchase the tickets.
All season ticket purchases made by opening night, including existing season ticket holders, will be eligible for the Season Ticket Holder draft.
