A quick reminder to Brewers fans who plan on staying up late to watch tonight’s Brewers-Padres game that it is the final Brewers game in April which means an end to the “Brewers Win, You Win” promotion.
Every win in April has meant $1 off Terrace Level tickets for the May 7 – 9 series at Miller Park against the Cincinnati Reds. So far, the Brewers have notched 10 wins and look for an 11th win tonight (9:05 p.m. Milwaukee time first pitch, there will be a lot of sleepy Brewers fans at work tomorrow!).
The regular ticket price for Terrace Box seats is $23 and Terrace Reserved seats are $16. With 10 wins so far this month for the Brewers, the price of a Terrace Box ticket is currently $13 and Terrace Reserved seats are currently $6. If the Brewers beat the Padres tonight, Terrace Box tickets will be just $12 and Terrace Reserved seats will be just $5.
Tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. tomorrow morning at the Brewers Box Office, by phone at (414) 902-4000 or by visiting brewers.com/winwin. Please keep in mind that fans will be limited to eight (8) tickets per order and sales are expected to be brisk so you might want to set your alarm after a late night of watching the Brew Crew!
The Brewers Consumer Marketing department (which is comprised of marketing/advertising, ticket sales and ticket operations) was just as excited as the rest of the Brewers faithful to learn that we had acquired 2009 Cy Young Award-winning pitcher, Zack Greinke, from the Kansas City Royals on Sunday.
We’re all Brewers fans at heart (with the amount of time and energy we devote to our jobs, you have to be!), so the news was like an early holiday gift to us.
With that gift, however, came the perfect example of what I’ve been telling you all along: There is no offseason!
This won’t be an official “no offseason” post because we’re so busy here, but I thought you might be interested in how we reacted quickly to the Greinke announcement.
Right now, we’re in the midst of wrapping up our Holiday 4-Pack campaign, looking at our 2011 TV spot ideas, working on Brewers On Deck advertising, looking ahead to our 9-Pack campaign, and also working on some exciting top-secret stuff you’ll find out about soon enough.
However, once the announcement about Greinke was made, in the marketing/advertising area specifically, we quickly turned our attention to welcoming Zack to Milwaukee.
This ad ran in today’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
While our creative juices were flowing, the rest of the Consumer Marketing department set to work handling the influx of Brewers fans interested in snapping up Brewers tickets.
One adjustment that we quickly made due to increased demand was extending our Holiday 4-Pack campaign. Holiday 4-Packs were supposed to go off sale at midnight on Monday, but due to the high volume of calls and orders we were receiving, we decided to extend it until midnight tonight. Last minute shoppers should come directly to the Miller Park Box Office if they want to make sure that they receive their Holiday 4-Packs in time for Christmas.
Speaking of holiday gift ideas, the Brewers retail department has also been busy. Greinke shirts are expected to be in the store today, as John reported yesterday.
I could go on and on with all of the other things that are happening as well, but that gives you a quick snapshot into what has been a very busy–and exciting!–week here at Miller Park.
Alright–back to work!
