Braun Steps Up To Support “Brewers Win, You Win”

It’s been a tough month for the Brewers on the field, there is no getting around that.  In the face of that, Ryan Braun has committed to supporting the “Brewers Win, You Win!” promotion by funding a significant savings on tickets for an upcoming series.

The original promotion called for every Brewers victory between May 1 and May 30 to earn $1 off a Terrace Box ticket for the June 3 – 5 series vs. the Oakland Athletics. With just five victories this month, though, the Brewers outfielder has made a move to make sure that Brewers fans are rewarded despite the team’s struggles.

Regardless of how many wins the team records through the end of the month, fans will be able to buy a limited number of Terrace Box (regularly $24) and Loge Bleacher ($23) seats for just $8 (matching Braun’s uniform number). Braun is stepping up and subsidizing the savings through a financial contribution, which will cover up to 4,000 tickets for each of the three games against the A’s.

“We recognize that this has been a tough month for all of us; not just the players but also the fans,” Braun said. “The one constant has been the support of the community, and every one of us on the field has tremendous respect for the support we receive from the fans. On behalf of all of us on the field, we want to thank the fans and let them know that we really appreciate everyone being behind us during this rough stretch.”

Tickets for this promotion will go on sale this Friday at 9 a.m. at the Brewers Box Office, by phone at 414-902-4000 or by visiting Brewers.com/winwin.  Fans can buy a maximum of eight tickets at the reduced price, and service charges will apply to phone and online orders.

“Ryan has always been a significant contributor to our Foundation and Community Relations initiatives, both financially and with his time,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We appreciate his contribution to ensure that this remains one of our most popular initiatives, offering a great value for fans.”

For additional information, please visit Brewers.com/winwin.  We are lucky to have Braun wearing a Brewers jersey on the field and he has proved to be a great person off the field as well.  Through promotions like this and his commitment to the Milwaukee community, he is one-of-a-kind.  Here’s to a better June and we will see you all at Miller Park during the series against the A’s!

Marketing Team Brings Home Overall Award of Excellence from 2012 National Sports Forum

I’ve just returned from Oklahoma City, site of the 2012 National Sports Forum and my suitcase is a bit heavier…. That’s because I’m carrying back this: The 2012 National Sports Forum ADchievement Overall Award of Excellence!

The National Sports Forum is the largest annual cross gathering of the top sports marketing, sales, promotions and event entertainment executives from throughout the broad spectrum of teams and leagues, (i.e. NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, Minor Leagues, Racing, Colleges, etc.), in North America.

It was wonderful that several people from our staff were able to attend this conference this year, as it is so energizing to be around your peers in the industry, discussing challenges, exchanging new ideas and learning best practices. There are sessions on everything from Sponsorship and Ticket Sales to Management and Marketing and this year, I even had the chance to lead my own breakout session on creativity and new media, which was a great opportunity.

In conjunction with the conference, the Forum also hosts the National ADChievement Awards, an advertising competition for sports-related campaigns and collateral. Well, this year, we submitted several of our campaigns and pieces and I’m proud to say that our team was recognized as the recipient of this year’s Overall Award of Excellence.

Brewers VP-Consumer Marketing and I, as we accept the award on behalf of the organization.

Both our internal creative team (comprised of VP of Consumer Marketing, Jim Bathey; Senior Director of Marketing, Kathy Schwab; Senior Graphic Designer, Jeff Harding, Graphic Designer, Molly Arndt; and myself), and our external agency partner, 2-Story Creative, worked together to strategize and develop the items that were recognized with this award.

It was an honor just to be chosen as a finalist for this award, as the field for this year’s Overall Award of Excellence included some pretty stiff competition in the Greenville Drive (winner of the award the past two years in a row), Houston Texans, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Lightning.

Speaking from personal experience, I know how much hard work goes into everything we do during the season, so it was so wonderful to be recognized in front of our peers with this award.

I’d just like to use this opportunity to say how proud I am of our team and how much I enjoy working with everyone each day. I’m truly honored to be surrounded by people who strive for excellence in all that they do.

 
Cheers!
