The Chicago Bears are offering a unique fan experience as an enter-to-win contest for its home opener titled “Be The Captain.” The lucky winner will take the 4th Phase flag from a Bears starter and represent the 4th Phase at midfield.
As the promotion states on the Bears website: “Picture yourself in the tunnel with the players as they get ready to take the field for the 2009 home opener. Picture yourself standing on the field, receiving the 4th Phase flag from a Chicago Bears player. As you carry that flag across Soldier Field, you represent all the fans that make up the 4th Phase.”
What a neat way to engage and involved the Bears fans with a unique and memorable enter-to-win contest that should prove to be effective for attracting many fans to sign up and provide their information for a chance to win the contest.

Many sports teams provide a page on their websites for special ticket offers, but the Chicago Cubs have created a Special Offers page that not only includes ticket offers, but also the Cubs Club, merchandise, away game trips, the Wrigley brick program, VIP seats, and enter to win contests. It’s well done and worth a look and consideration from other sports organizations.

I like what the Chattanooga Athletics Department has created with its Father’s Day football season ticket special. Fans get their Dad a pair of season tickets for only %55, which is a 40% savings off the regular season ticket price.
If the 40% savings isn’t enough to win you over, there’s more. The package includes Mocs Visor, a Mocs koozie, and a certificate announcing the “Father’s Day Special” purchase.
Finally, additional season tickets are also available with this offer for just $27.50 each.
