DETROIT– The Red Wings are back! And as a way to say ‘Thanks for Sticking with Us' the Original Six franchise plans to celebrate the extraordinary passion and support of their loyal fans.
At the opener on Tuesday, January 22, fans at The Joe, along with fans that follow the club via traditional and online media, will have a chance to win prizes including a trip to a Red Wings' road game, autographed Wings merchandise, televisions courtesy of Fox Sports Detroit, tablets courtesy of AT&T, gift cards from Kroger and Tim Hortons, glow wands for all guests and VIP gift packs from Motor City Casino Hotel and much more.
On opening night, fans will be treated with 50 percent discounts on sodas and draft beers. Thirty percent off Red Wings merchandise is available for all three January games.
Other ‘thank you' initiatives planned include the free kids prize wheel, featuring a variety of Red Wings items for children and a wide-range of media and partner ticket promotions, including ‘Unlock The Joe' where two lucky fans will have the opportunity to open The Joe for the start of the regular-season.
All 24 home games will be either promotional or giveaway nights for fans, and special ticket offers to students and families will be available again this season. Local students can receive discounts through "Student Rush", the last-minute ticket offers for students, who can text "rush" to 21732. Families will also like the Meijer Coke Zero Family Packs, where, for $54, fans can get two tickets, two hot dogs and two sodas to select home games. And for those Internet and social media savvy fans, the Wings and Ticketmaster will offer free ticket forwarding and print-at-home, and the Wings' ‘Social Saturday' specials will be available all season long.
