The Philadelphia Flyers will welcome their 25-millionth fan on Saturday, November 5, when they host the Atlanta Thrashers at the Wachovia Center beginning at 7 p.m. The Flyers will present the lucky fan with "millions" of gifts, literally.

"The Flyers have the best fans in all of sports. Having started the team in 1967, I couldn't possibly imagine that someday we would be welcoming our 25-millionth fan," said Flyers Chairman and Governor Ed Snider. Snider is also Chairman of Comcast-Spectacor.

Upon entering the Wachovia Center, Snider will present the 25-millionth fan with a team-signed Flyers jersey which reads 'Million' on the back with No. 25. In addition, the Flyers will shower the 25-millionth fan with confetti as the lucky entrant proceeds down the orange carpet under the spotlights.
