The Tampa Bay Lightning announced its schedule of giveaways to be distributed to fans during the 2010-11 regular season today. Giveaways are available at all 41 home games this season and will be distributed for each game’s allocated number of fans who are first to arrive at the arena.
Take a look at the Steven Stamkos bobblehead we'll give away courtesy of CW44 at the December 20, 2010 game vs. Carolina.
The 18-game lineup of premium giveaways yields a variety of items including a special t-shirt series presented by the St. Petersburg Times, as well as a number of other promotional materials, courtesy of valued sponsors of the Tampa Bay Lightning and St. Pete Times Forum. Two giveaways will be handed out in October and November, with one additional item designated for distribution in December. Two additional dates are set for January, six more in February and four in March. The final item will be given out at the last home game of the regular season on April 8 against Florida.
All full-season ticket holders, regardless of the time of entrance into the arena, are guaranteed to receive at least six giveaways on select dates this season. In addition to receiving premium items on various designated dates throughout the season, Lightning fans will also receive a Lightning player trading card sheet at all other home games not included on the giveaway schedule.
