Millionth Fan Promotion Success Story

Goodyear Ballpark Celebrates An Attendance Milestone

Want to make the most of a major attendance milestone? This season, recognize your “X” millionth fan’s arrival with a big prize promotion from Odds On! Check out how Bruce Kessman and the team at Goodyear Ballpark gave a Lucky Fan the chance to win a million bucks…

“The Millionth Fan promotion was absolutely amazing! The promotion started in the 1st inning with narrowing down to which side of the ballpark the Millionth Fan was on. The build-up continued in the 3rd inning when we narrowed it down to one section before finally revealing the Millionth Fan in the 4th inning. Section 117, Row S, Seat #2 belonged to Jean Wilson and was Goodyear Ballpark’s Millionth Fan. During the half inning reveal, Taneka was live on the mic in the section accompanied by ballpark staff and interns who showered the area with confetti, silly string, beads, and party hats.

During the middle of the 5th inning, Jean was presented with the “Golden Fan” trophy by Goodyear’s City Manager, Mr. Dalke.

Post-game, the Millionth Fan celebration continued as Jean was presented with more gifts and prizes on the field which included a commemorative Goodyear Ballpark jersey which was presented by Ryan Lantz and Mike Saverino.

Jean also had the chance to win one million dollars, ten thousand dollars, or a Vegas Prize Pack! 35 envelopes were scattered on a table at home plate and Jean had to select one at a time until she revealed 5 of one prize. She didn’t win the million dollars but walked away with the Vegas Prize Pack. She walked away saying, “This was the best day of my life!”

And if giving a lucky fan a one-in-a-million experience wasn’t enough, Goodyear Ballpark set a new single-game record with a crowd of 11,616!

Want to give your fans the chance to win a million this season – or have “the best day of their life”? Email or give me a call today to learn more about how you can add the thrills of a giant prize promotion to your lineup this year.

Baseball Contest Ideas: Home Run Derby Worth $30K

baseball contest ideas - homerun derbyIn need of some baseball contest ideas that will increase fan attendance and engagement at your next big game?  If so, then you’re going to absolutely love hearing about this baseball promotion we helped a Minor League team in the Northeastern U.S. to insure as part of their  Opening Day
— a Home Run Derby Contest!

Here’s how the baseball contest worked … on Opening Day, one lucky fan, chosen via raffle ticket, was selected to take three swings at a baseball off of a hitting tee placed at home plate.  If they successfully “hit one deep” over the six-foot-high fence, they would have been awarded generously – with a brand new truck valued at $30,000, compliments of the sponsor and paid for by Odds On.

While unfortunately, the fan who was selected didn’t score the vehicle, they still had an absolute blast — as did all of the other fans!

While winning an insured grand prize is always nice, it’s definitely not all that counts. When I think about what qualifies as a “winning promotion”, I tend to think about factors such as increased attendance, fan excitement, and interaction… as well as capturing valuable marketing information from your fans!  Speaking of which, be sure to check out our Online Contest Registration.

Baseball Promotional Nights: $5,000 Grand Slam Inning

baseball promotional nights - grand slam inningAre you looking for an exciting baseball contest that will showcase you team or a key sponsor’s business during a baseball promotional night?  Odds On has been working with a Minor League Baseball team based out of the Northeastern U.S. to insure a baseball promotion at ten of their games during the season!

For this team’s baseball promotional nights,  the contest is a Grand Slam Inning promotion. During each of the ten games, if a member of the team makes an out of the park grand slam home run during the 4th inning of the game, one randomly selected fan will score a $5,000 home theater system, compliments of local Audio/Video retailer  – the contest sponsor, and paid for by Odds On Promotions!

Baseball Contest Idea: $1,000,000 Lucky Envelopes Contest!

baseball contest idea - lucky envelopesAre you looking for a fabulous baseball contest idea that will excite your fans and draw a crowd to your next big game?  How about theming the promotion around your fanbase, just like this Minor League Baseball client of mine in the Southeastern U.S. did during their One Millionth Fan Celebration!

Here’s how this particular baseball contest idea worked: The “nth” (in this case, the 1,000,000th) fan that walked through the turnstyle was selected to participate in a Lucky Envelopes promotion for a chance to win big after the 7th inning of the big baseball game that evening!  This “Pick ‘Til You Win”-style promotion gave the lucky fan the opportunity to choose from 5 of 40 money bags, each of which contained an envelope.  If the fan happened to choose the five envelopes which happened to contain matching grand prize inserts, they would have won $1,000,000… paid for by Odds On Promotions!

The promotion doesn’t just end there, however!  The best part about using our “Pick ‘Til You Win”-style Lucky Envelopes game as a baseball contest idea is the fact that the contestant is a winner regardless!  Two other prizes were up for grabs: a $30,000 vehicle, also insured by Odds On, and FREE tickets for LIFE — self-insured by the baseball team!  It was just a matter of which 5 matching inserts were collected by the fan first!

Unfortunately, while the fan didn’t end up scoring the $1,000,000 insured prize, she still received two free tickets for life!  Want to give your “nth” fan the opportunity to bring a guest to come see your team play for the rest of their lives?  Better yet, want to offer an insured grand prize of up to $1,000,000?  Odds On Promotions can make it happen with one of our baseball contest ideas!  Give us a call today at 888-827-2249… or email us with any questions!
