OPENING DAY TICKET OPPORTUNITY BEGINS TOMORROW; Weekend Games also Included in Opening Day Opportunity at Brewers.com

Today we announced specifics of an Opening Day Ticket Opportunity that will allow fans the chance to purchase tickets to Opening Day and weekend games at Miller Park prior to the sale of individual tickets.

Beginning tomorrow, January 27 at 9 a.m. and continuing through Monday, February 16 at 11:59pm, fans can go to Brewers.com and register for the opportunity to purchase up to four tickets to Opening Day on Monday, April 6 against the Colorado Rockies. Due to limited availability, the Opening Day Ticket Opportunity includes single seats, standing room only and some obstructed view seats. In addition, fans can register for a maximum of eight tickets to each of the weekend games (Friday-Sunday) at Miller Park.

Following registration, a pool of randomly selected winners will be chosen and provided access to an online pre-sale opportunity, based on available inventory. The winners will be notified on Friday, February 20. Fans who win the chance to purchase tickets for Opening Day will be able to purchase tickets starting on Tuesday, February 24 at 9 a.m., while fans who win the chance to purchase tickets for weekend games will be able to do so starting on Wednesday, February 25 at 9 a.m.

There is no charge to register. This will be the only opportunity for fans to purchase single game tickets for Opening Day, other than a very small number set aside for fans lining up at the Box Office on the first day of individual game sales at Miller Park. Single game ticket sales will go on sale at a later date (exact date TBD).

Meanwhile, there are still options available for fans to guarantee their place at Miller Park for Opening Day and other popular games with 10-Packs starting as low as $160.  Each 10-Pack includes 10 Brewers home games, plus a bonus of Opening Day or any other game of the fan’s choice absolutely FREE. Fans interested in purchasing 10-Packs are encouraged to call 414-902-HITS (4487) or visit Brewers.com/10packs for more information.

Please note: A very limited amount of individual tickets will be available for Opening Day.

Miller Park Time Lapse

I included this video in my post about our #SeeUApril6 Contest, but I felt like it deserved its own post as well.

Check out this awesome time lapse of the Miller Park game day experience, put together by Scott Paulus, our team photographer:

Ah, doesn’t that just make you long for summer? The good news is–each day we’re getting one day closer to Opening Day and the fun and excitement that we know will last all summer long.

The Countdown to Brewers Opening Day is On! Win 10-Packs, Opening Day Tickets, Roundtrip Airfare and More with our #SeeUApril6 Contest

The new year brings with it a new season and, a new countdown to Opening Day, Monday, April 6 when your Brewers take on the Colorado Rockies at 1:10pm at Miller Park.

As you know, Opening Day is practically a holiday in Milwaukee and looking forward to it helps us all get through the long, cold Wisconsin winter. As of today (Tuesday, January 13) we’re just 83 days away from kicking off the 2015 season at Miller Park and #OneDayCloser to all of this:

Last year, we asked you to join us in our countdown by creating original photo(s) showing how you were counting down to the Brewers Home Opener each day leading up to it and this year, we’re inviting you to do the same.

MB-15_Countdown-Contest-600x600-NoSWA

Here’s how it works:

For example, Friday, January 16 is 80 days until Opening Day. Fans submitting their photos showing their “80” by 5pm CT the day prior (Thursday, January 15) will be eligible to have theirs selected as the one we post across all of our social media channels on Friday, January 16.  Simply tag your entries on Instagram and/or Twitter using hashtag #SeeUApril6.

Each day, we’ll select our favorite and post it across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google Plus and Tumblr, giving you credit, of course!

Like last year’s contest, we’ll be selecting a Grand Prize winner, but this year the pot has been sweetened.

Each of the daily winners will be eligible to win a Qualifying Prize along the way and from those Qualifying Prize Winners, we’ll select a Grand Prize winner to win a pair of Brewers 10-Packs, Opening Day tickets AND roundtrip airfare on Southwest Airlines!

Perhaps you could use that flight to join the #BrewersRoadCrew and see the team on the road this season.

For complete rules as well as some of the first few photos we’ve selected, click here.

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

#SeeUApril6!

Go to Opening Day FREE with a Brewers 10-Pack; On Sale Tomorrow at 10 a.m.

As the calendar turns, each day brings us one day closer to the return of Brewers Baseball. Fans can secure their tickets to Opening Day for free with a Brewers 10-Pack, which go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. There are six enticing plans to choose from, including the popular Fan’s Choice Plan which returns for 2015. All plans feature 10 home games, plus Opening Day or any other game of the fan’s choice as their FREE 11th game.

In addition to tickets to Opening Day, each of the six plans offer a unique experience. The Weekend Plan features four giveaways, including the Mother’s Day Bobblehank on May 10, June 14’s Carlos Gomez All-Star Bobblehead, a bobblehead of National League All-Star Jonathan Lucroy on August 16 and an All Fan Giveaway item to be decided by fan vote and distributed on the final day of the regular season, Sunday, October 4. The Premier Plan includes contests against all four division rivals as well as a matchup against NL West Division rival, the Los Angeles Dodgers, on May 6. The Friday Plan includes a string of five “T-Shirt Friday” giveaways starting with the June 12 game against the Washington Nationals and ending on August 14 when the Brewers host the Philadelphia Phillies. To top it off, the Friday Plan includes access to the first ever Brewers Postgame Concert Series when country artist Joe Nichols rocks Miller Park after the May 29 game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The popular Fan’s Choice Plan returns for the 2015 season and provides the ultimate flexibility for fans to select 10 games that fit their schedule from a list of 49 Brewers regular season home games. The plan can include several Interleague matchups, a variety of weekday and weekend games, All-Fan Bobblehead dates, T-Shirt Fridays, and more. A complete list of all six 10-Pack’s including the Fan’s Choice plan, is attached.

Packages start at $160 per seat in the Terrace Reserved ($16 per game) and can also be purchased in the Terrace Box for $250 ($25 per game), the Loge Outfield Box for $340 ($34 per game), the Club Outfield Box for $420 ($42 per game, no wait staff), the Loge Infield Box for $420 ($42 per game), the Field Outfield Box for $420 ($42 per game) and the Loge Diamond Box for $500 ($50 per game).

Brewers 10-Packs offer several benefits, including a free ticket to Opening Day (or any other home game on the 2015 schedule), guaranteed seat location, a personal account representative and priority access to Postseason tickets. In addition, 10-Pack Ticket Plans offer great savings on ticket prices. Last season, 10-Pack holders saved up to 35% off the demand-based individual game price. Each 10-Pack account will also receive three (3) exchange vouchers that can be used to exchange tickets you cannot or did not use for tickets to another game.”

Fans interested in purchasing 10-Packs are encouraged to call (414) 902-HITS (4487) or visit Brewers.com/10packs for more information.

Fans can share in the excitement of counting down to Brewers Opening Day by following the Brewers on social media and also enter to win a pair of 10-Packs, tickets to Opening Day and roundtrip airfare on Southwest Airlines—by posting their creative countdown photos on Twitter and/or Instagram using the hashtag #SeeUApril6.

Brewers Head on First Road Trip of 2014; Will We See You There?

After a 3-game series against the Atlanta Braves to open the season at Miller Park, the Brewers are embarking on their first road trip of the season, with stops in Boston and Philadelphia where they will be part of two more Opening Days.

The team will begin with Interleague play in Boston against the Red Sox with three games this weekend, including tomorrow afternoon, which is Boston’s home opener. Then, the team will head to Philadelphia. Monday is the Phillies home opener, followed by an off day on Tuesday and two more games against the Phillies next Wednesday and Thursday before heading back home to Miller Park to take on the Pirates beginning Friday, April 11.

From what we’ve seen over the past few seasons, Brewers fans love to travel.  Every city we go to, there are Brewers fans making their presence felt, and, in talking to players and coaches, they notice and appreciate the support while away from Miller Park.

Nothing is better than seeing true Brewers fans hanging out before games during batting practice, cheering on the team after a Brewers road win and walking the streets in whatever city the Crew is in.

From seeing some of your tweets and hearing people talk, it sounds like the Brewers will be well supported in Boston and Philly with many  fans planning on making the trip.

John will be on the road trip with the team and he will be looking for Brewers fans in both cities.  If you plan on going to the games (or any games throughout the season for that matter), tweet and/or Instagram your photos using #BrewersRoadCrew as the hashtag.

We’ll collect them throughout the trip and post them here on the blog, as well as post them on our social sites.

In addition, you can upload them to our Brewers Fans on the Fly digital fan map and your photo just might be selected to be shown on the scoreboard during a game!

Are any fans planning meeting up anywhere before any of the games?  Let us know; we’ll also post any Brewers fans pregame events that fans might be planning.

Hopefully we’ll see some of you on the road–if not this trip, sometime this season!

Cheer loud and proud, Brewers fans!

#MyBrewersOpener Contest during #BrewersOpener on Monday

Fans attending Opening Day at Miller Park on Monday now have the unique chance to be featured in an upcoming Instragram-built video project called #MyBrewersOpener.

We’re looking to create a commemorative “InstragraMovie” built solely from hundreds of Instagram photos — YOUR photos depicting YOUR experiences attending Opening Day at Miller Park.

600x600-MIL-Instagram-movie-v2

Capture it all — from the time your day starts until the final out. All you need to do is include #MyBrewersOpener in your Instagram pictures on game day and — even better — one lucky Instaphotographer could win four tickets to the Brewers game at Miller Park against the Cubs on April 27, 2014!

These videos are pretty cool, check out this one from last year’s World Series:

So make sure to document your whole day on Instagram, include the hashtag and celebrate the Brewers!

Please note: the official hashtag for Opening Day is simply #BrewersOpener, so use that elsewhere on social media (i.e. Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc.) to following the conversation. By adding in the “MY” on Instagram, that’s the best way we can find the photos you’ve meant to share with us/enter in the promotion.

Until then…#SeeUMarch31

Opening Day Ceremonies Set

13_OD_PRIMARY_LOGO

We just announced the ceremonies and special events for Monday’s Opening Day, a 1:10 p.m. start vs. Atlanta.  A reminder that tickets are sold out for Monday’s Opening Day, but tickets do remain for the other two games of the Atlanta series.

The ceremonial first pitch will be thrown out by a trio of Wisconsin-born Olympic heroes from the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.  Matt Antoine, born in Prairie du Chien, Wis., was a bronze medalist in the Skeleton competition.  Brianna Decker, from Dousman, Wis. and Jessica Vetter, from Cottage Grove, Wis., were each members of the USA women’s hockey team that won the silver medal.  Decker now is on the University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team and Vetter is a graduate of the university.   It will be an honor to have these great athletes on hand to kick off the 2014 season.

An Opening Day tradition will continue Monday as Joseph Attanasio, father of Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio, will sing the national anthem.

All fans in attendance Monday will receive the always popular 2014 Brewers schedule magnet (honestly, is there a refrigerator in Wisconsin that doesn’t have one!?  It is a staple for all summer plans.)

Here are some other key notes:

– When Tweeting about Opening Day, please use the hashtag #BrewersOpener.

– Parking Lots open at 10 a.m. on Monday.

– Gates to Miller Park open at 11 a.m. on Monday.

– If you do have tickets to Opening Day and are planning on driving to and parking at Miller Park, it is recommended that you plan ahead.  Fans may buy parking passes in advance for all home dates at Miller Park through the Miller Park box office, Brewers.com or by phone at 414-902-4000.  Parking passes for Opening Day are available, but in limited supply.

We are looking forward to a fun day!  See you Monday!

Brewers and Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy Team Up for “Arctic Tailgate” on Saturday, March 1 at Miller Park

Two of the most anticipated annual “signs of summer” are coming together to form the perfect storm for Brewers fans, and it’s all happening in just a few short weeks at Miller Park.

Today we announced that we have set Saturday, March 1 as the date for this year’s Arctic Tailgate party, which marks the beginning of individual ticket sales at Miller Park. Individual game tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. that day. This is the eighth year that the Arctic Tailgate will mark the start of individual ticket sales.

MB-2014 Arctic Tailgate Logo

New this year, campers in line at Miller Park will have a chance to warm up in a Leinenkugel’s heated tent. The tent will be open both Thursday and Friday from 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

To celebrate the coming of summer, the first statewide serving of Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy will be available to a limited number of guests, 21 and older (NOTE: Fans must be in line at 5 pm on either Thursday or Friday to receive a wristband redeemable for one complimentary Leinenkugel product). Also, Pepsi products will be available both nights for those under 21.

In addition, the Leinenkugel’s Airstream will make an appearance at Miller Park, along with visits on Thursday and Friday from Dick Leinenkugel of the famous brewing family.

As the largest summer seasonal craft beer, Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy has developed a major league following since its debut in 2007. With increasing growth year over year, Summer Shandy has become synonymous with summer and America’s pastime.

On Saturday morning (March 1), the Box Office windows will open at 9 am for the sale of individual game tickets. Grebe’s Bakery, a new partner for the Brewers this year, will get the fun started with complimentary donuts for those in line. The Klement’s Famous Racing SausagesTM, Bernie Brewer and Brewers alumni players will be on hand to greet fans all morning. The first 2,000 fans in line will receive a hot dog and soda, compliments of Klement’s, Pepsi and Sportservice, as well as an Arctic Tailgate t-shirt. FOX Sports Wisconsin and 620 WTMJ will both serve as media sponsors, and the FOX Sports Wisconsin Girls will be in attendance on Saturday.

Only a very limited number of tickets for Opening Day will be available at this event (note: the Miller Park Box Office will be the only place where fans will be able to purchase individual Opening Day tickets on March 1; no phone or online orders will be accepted). Each fan will be limited to a maximum of four tickets for Opening Day, based on availability. Meanwhile, through Monday, February 17, fans can visit Brewers.com and register for the chance to be selected in an Opening Day opportunity to purchase up to four tickets to Opening Day and up to eight tickets to weekend games at Miller Park this season.

Tickets for individual Brewers home games can be purchased starting Saturday, March 1 at 9 a.m. at the Miller Park Box Office, at Brewers.com or by calling (414) 902-4000 (or 800-933-7890). 

Demand-based pricing, which provides the best ticket value for fans, will return for all Brewers games this season. The pricing will be implemented in almost all of the Miller Park seating categories (excluding All-Inclusive Areas, Suites, and the Uecker Seats).

Beginning with the first day of individual game sales (set for Saturday, March 1), pricing for all 81 games is subject to change. Fans should be reminded that they will usually receive the lowest price when they purchase their seats early. Fans will be able to purchase tickets at the Ticket Office or by visiting Brewers.com, selecting the “Tickets” tab and then clicking on the Single Game Tickets link. For more information regarding demand-based pricing by specific games, fans can visit Brewers.com/tickets.

Fans will also be able to purchase parking passes in advance for all home dates at Miller Park including Opening Day. All parking prices remain the same from last season. Advance General Parking passes are available for all games and are priced at $9 with Preferred Parking at $14 per pass. Bus passes can also be obtained in advance for $35. For Opening Day, there is a purchase limit of two advance parking passes per ticket order. A complete listing of the parking prices is shown below.

In addition to the Miller Park Ticket Office, fans will be able to buy tickets and parking at Brewers.com or by phone at (414) 902-4000.
