WILKES-BARRE, PA – Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins fans can get geared up for the biggest football game of the season a little early, as the team presents FOOTBALL FRIDAY, Sponsored by McCarthy Tire.
The WBS Penguins face the Manitoba Moose at 7:05 p.m. on Friday, February 4, and the night will revolve around the NFL championship game featuring the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fans are encouraged to show their allegiance by wearing their favorite team’s football jersey to the game. There will be super football-themed giveaways throughout the night, football-styled intermission contests, and trivia questions concerning the big game.
The WBS Penguins organization will also show its backing for the cross-state football team by offering fans a chance to win a special Steelers raffle item. McCarthy Tire will also donate four tickets to a future Steelers home game which will be raffled for charity.
The team’s support will be obvious to everyone in attendance as the center ice logo, which usually features the WBS Penguins crest, will be switched to showcase the Pittsburgh Steelers emblem.
“As an extension of the Pittsburgh Penguins, we are happy to show our backing to our Black and Gold brethren as they go for their seventh NFL championship on Sunday,” said Wilkes-Barre/Scranton CEO Jeff Barrett.
