The Tampa Bay Lightning have selected 20 lucky winners to ‘Be The Ticket’ for the upcoming 2011-12 regular season, the team announced today. Contestants were asked to submit Lightning-themed photos through the team’s official Facebook page at facebook.com/Lightning.NHL in July. The selected photos will now be featured on one of 20 game tickets in the Lightning’s 2011-12 season ticket booklet.
Be the Ticket Winners
“We were overwhelmed with the large number of fan entries for our ‘Be the Ticket’ campaign,” said Vice President of Brand Management Lynn Wittenburg. “In the end, we selected 20 photos and encouraged the lucky winners to ‘Be the Thunder’ behind the Lightning. We thank them for taking part in the campaign and for being such loyal supporters of the team and our players.”
The 20 designated games in which Lightning fans will appear on tickets span from October 20 to April 2. In addition to being featured on the selected game’s ticket, each winner will receive four Channelside Club tickets to the corresponding game, as well as a commemorative ticket as a keepsake. Each winner will also be recognized on LightningVision during the game, while their “fan profiles” will be featured on tampabaylightning.com.
The entire Lightning organization would like to thank all the fans who submitted a photo to the "Be the Ticket" Facebook contest. The 20 winners whose photos will appear on tickets in the 2011-12 season tickets booklet have been notified. Though every photo received was not able to be selected for this particular contest, all of the submissions were gratefully accepted and several have been included on the team’s official Bolts Nation Fan Zone page here.
Throughout the season, fans are encouraged to continue to submit their best fan photos to email@example.com for your chance to be featured on the Lightning website in the near future.
